I was wondering what would be the minimal configuration for a backup instance using a shared store and multicast discovery.
My backup configuration is the same as the live except it is explicitly marked as <backup>true</backup>. Although both servers can share the same configuration (besides that parameter), I have the feeling some configuration items are not actually required by the backup to perform its duties.
More precisely, are the following items required in the backup configuration:
- JMS configuration (connection factories, destinations): not required in the backup configuration since they will be created on demand from information contained in the journal when the backup comes live.
- Security and Address settings: are they required or are they obtained from the journal as well ?
Can other items be omitted as well ?
I mean, the goal is to come up with the minimal set of configuration items to avoid duplication and ease the administration...
