Short Description: Tells the cluster engine to failover to alternative port if default port is unavailable
Clusters are designed to improve server availability. To configure a IBM® Lotus® Domino™ server for clustering, specify a default port in the server's NOTES.INI file by using this setting: Server_Cluster_Default_Port=portname. When you specify a port, you limit cluster replication to that specific port even if the port has failed. If the setting Server_Cluster_Default_Port= is not defined, the standard server search algorithm is used and all ports are tried. If the designated port fails, that is, the port specified in the Server_Cluster_Default_Port= NOTES.INI setting, the server may be accessible from another port. You can allow the use of other ports by entering this NOTES.INI setting in the server's NOTES.INI file: Server_Cluster_Auxilary_Port=portname.
Note If you do not specify a default port in the setting Server_Cluster_Default_Port=, all ports are tried.
The Server_Cluster_Auxilary_Port= setting can be set to any one of these values:
- Blank -- Do not specify an auxiliary port. The user sees no change in the existing behavior.
- * (asterisk) -- Specify * in the Server_Cluster_Auxilary_Ports= setting. All ports are checked if the server specified in the setting Server_Cluster_Default_Port= cannot be reached.
- List of port names separated by a comma -- Specify a comma delimited list of port names in the Server_Cluster_Auxiliary_Ports= setting. The ports in the list are checked for the desired server.
If you set this notes.ini via console you can monitor the result:
set config Server_Cluster_Auxiliary_Ports=tcpip
2009-05-22 12:33:12 SERVER_CLUSTER_AUXILIARY_PORTS changed to tcpip.
There is no kown UI setting for this notes.ini variable. But you can specify this setting in the notes.ini settings tab of the configuration settings document.
