We currently are currently running 1 Publisher and 2 Subscribers and while checking the alerts in RTM have noticed "Critical Service Down" DRF Local Service, this is just on the Subscribers and not the Publisher. Master and Local DRF Service is running on the Publisher.
Am I correct in believing that the DRF Local process should not be running on the Subscribers?
Solved! Go to Solution.
The system automatically activates the Master Agent (MA) on the server.
The system automatically starts the Master Agent service on each node of the cluster, but the Master Agent is functional only on the First node. The Master Agents on the subsequent nodes do not perform any functions.
The Master Agent (MA) performs the following duties:
•The MA stores system-wide component registration information.
•The MA maintains a complete set of scheduled tasks in an XML file. The MA updates this file when it receives updates of schedules from the user interface. The MA sends executable tasks to the applicable Local Agents, as scheduled. (Local Agents execute immediate-backup tasks without delay.)
•You access the MA through the Disaster Recovery System user interface to perform activities such as configuring backup devices, scheduling backups by adding new backup schedules, viewing or updating an existing schedule, displaying status of executed schedules, and performing system restoration.
•The MA stores backup data on a locally attached tape drive or a remote network location.
The server has a Local Agent to perform backup and restore functions.
Each server in a Cisco Unified Communications Manager cluster, including the server that contains the Master Agent, must have its own Local Agent to perform backup and restore functions for its server.
Note By default, a Local Agent automatically gets activated on each node of the cluster.
The Local Agent runs backup and restore scripts on the server.
In a cluster, the Local Agent runs backup and restore scripts on each node in the cluster.
Note The Disaster Recovery Systemuses an SSL-based communication between the Master Agent and the Local Agent for authentication and encryption of data between the Cisco Unified Communications Manager cluster nodes. DRS makes use of the IPSec certificates for its Public/Private Key encryption. This certificate exchange gets handled internally. You do not need to make any configuration changes to accommodate this exchange.
