Read the thread on HA improvements in the dev forum
Aye - thanks for that. Based on that thread, is it not it fair to suggest that "there is absolutely no solution at this time, please wait for a future release?"
This is a timely question, as I am dealing with a similar issue.
We have servers on two network segments, each network can use multicast, but the multicast packets cannot be routed from one network segment to the other. We would like to setup an HA HornetQ cluster on one network segment. The HornetQ servers will all be able to send multicast packets to each other. However, there would be some JMS clients on the other network.
Is failover still possible in this case?
Also, why does section 38.5.2 of the documentation describe how to setup a cluster of static nodes if failover is not possible? What is the point of even having a cluster configured in such a way? I must be missing something here...
