Tech Tip : CA Single Sign-On : Inconsistent behavior from PS to DB Loadbalancing

Discussion created by Patrick-Dussault Employee on Nov 5, 2018

on-line, the connections doen't goes back to the first instance.


We want to know why ?




At first glance, the behavior is as expected. Even if the nomenclature
of the configuration suggest there's a loadbalancing, the following
configuration means failover, and not loadbalancing :

As such, the behavior you see is as expected and by design.
