    domain controller - single point of failure?

    Lloyd Fischer Newbie

      I'm investigating EAP 6.0 (7.1.2?) in domain mode - non-HA. I have it up and running fine with a domain controller host and a second slave (is there a better name?) server host. But if I try to start the server before the domain controller it fails with a log message

       

      [Host Controller] 09:58:04,320 ERROR [org.jboss.as.host.controller] (Controller Boot Thread) JBAS010901: Could not connect to master. Aborting. Error was: java.lang.IllegalStateException: JBAS010951: Could not connect to master in 5 attempts within 30000 ms

       

      I see references to command line options --backup and --cached-dc that should allow the server to start without a DC, but bug https://issues.jboss.org/browse/AS7-4281 wold indicate this doesn't work.

       

      So is non-ha domain mode really dependent on the domain controller for the operation of any server? If so, this is not really production ready. I must be missing something.
