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.
Step 1: Performing Test Failovers
Perform test failover to verify whether the high availability setup is functioning properly. For more information on performing a test failover, see Performing Test Failovers.
Step 2: Resetting Test Failovers
After successful completion of the test failover, reset the test failover. For instructions, see Resetting Test Failovers.
Step 3: Performing Test Failovers to an Isolated Network
To perform a test failover to a standby CommServe host located in an isolated network, perform the test failover and reset the test failover. For instructions, see Performing Test Failovers to an Isolated Network.
