Scenario: We installed agents on a primary and failover server with the same agent name (one remains down) and then created a VIP with the two addresses. In AGENTDEF, I defined the agent name with the VIP and port but get a 'connection error'. When I define the agent with the actual addr and port of either server, then the Manager 11.4 on z.OS and the agent are able to communicate, one at a time.
How do I define a DR agent to be able to failover to using a VIP? Should we not use a VIP? Should the agent names be different and both remain up? Would workflow scripts know to use the DR agent if the primary agentname is coded?
Looking for suggestions.
