Complete Backup and Recovery
Automatic Failovers for CommServe LiveSync
Automatic CommServe failover provides high service availability for the CommServe server, which in turn, lowers the downtime for backups, restores, and other operations in a CommCell. When automatic failover is enabled, if a failure occurs, the active CommServe host automatically fails over to the standby CommServe host. Monitoring nodes are used to monitor the active CommServe host in real-time, to obtain the information necessary to detect failures, and to perform a successful failover to a standby CommServe host. If there is more than one standby node, the node with the most recent database will be made active.
Email Alerts for Client Computers That Might Miss or Might Have Missed the SLA
When a client computer is predicted to miss the SLA, the software sends an email alert. The email alert contains the list of the predicted client computers, the client computers that have already missed the SLA, and the associated reason for missing the SLA.
Universal Command Center
In a multi-CommCell environment, you can configure one or more Command Center machines, which are associated with a designated identity provider (IdP) CommCell machine, as universal Command Center machines. A universal Command Center machine is a machine that can host the Command Center applications of multiple service CommCell machines. Using a universal Command Center machine eliminates the need to maintain a Command Center machine for each service CommCell machine.
