Verifying Disaster Readiness Using Test Failover


On this page

A test failover can be performed to ensure that the failover process succeeds and the services are successfully started. Test failovers do not affect the current jobs and activities on the production CommServe host. Note that backups and restores are not allowed from the standby CommServe host during a test failover.


  1. Perform a test failover to verify whether the high availability setup is functioning properly.

  2. After the successful completion of a test failover, reset the test failover.
