    Backup to Primary fail-back procedure?

    Brian McCarty Newbie

      We have tested the primary node to backup node failover such that clients reconnect well enough; however, we are not clear as to what the expectation is for a procedure to get the clients back to the primary once it is restored.

      If we recover the primary and then shutdown the backup (for example), should client attempt to reconnect to the primary automatically? Possibly I am just missing a configuration step somewhere (I hope so) but that doesn't seem to happen.

      I vaguely remember reading somewhere that currently the backup does not try to sync messages/sessions/connections back to the primary when it is recovered, so what should the failback procedure be to have zero (or at least minimal) downtime for the clients?

      Thanks for the advice in advance.
