What happens if a Domino ICM server is down?
Posted on 2012-03-13
Problem. I`ve got 2 Lotus Domino servers in a cluster. Regardless how good ICM is developed, how in the world is a browser able to find out on its own, how to use another IP adress if one Domino server goes down? Yes a mail server is handled by MX records, but there is none MX like records for "a-records or cnames" in a DNS server that I am aware of. In linux we have a cache server in front. Cache servers can determine an alternate server back end.
As far I can see this may only work if we use an ICM serverice installed in front of a Domino cluster. Am I right about this folks?
