This is a short article to clarify some points about the APM HA implementation as reported at
Specifically this focus on creation and handling of VIP in an APM HA configuration.
[...] If you are using a virtual IP, you would use ifconfig to remove the VIP from server “B” and use ifconfig to assign the VIP to server “A”. [...]
Explanations and sample instructions about how to create VIPs for servers can be found at:
However this task can also be accomplished using IBM Tivoli System Automation as confirmed by the owner of the APM HA document.
1) We are not sure if the purchase of APM includes a license to use TSAMP with APM.
2) TSAMP requires scripts to stop, start, and monitor. We do not have these scripts for APM. Instead the customer would need to use generic scripts like apm start_all, apm stop_all, and apm status.
Finally a clarification.
Hope this helps
