Configure the load balancer, according to the vendor or supplier instructions. Procedures vary, but at a minimum you will identify the vCenter Hyperic server nodes in the cluster and the failover behavior.

1

Identify the vCenter Hyperic server nodes in the cluster.

2

Configure the load balancer to check the nodeStatus.hqu URL every 10 seconds.

For example, in a 2-node cluster, if the IP addresses of the nodes are 10.0.0.1 and 10.0.0.2, configure the load balancer to check these URLs every 10 seconds.

http://hqadmin:hqadmin@10.0.0.1:7080/hqu/health/status/nodeStatus.hqu
http://hqadmin:hqadmin@10.0.0.2:7080/hqu/health/status/nodeStatus.hqu
3

Configure the load balancer to direct all traffic to the node whose status is master=true.
