A Citrix ADC high-availability (HA) pair can provide an uninterrupted operation during downtime or network failures. You can create a HA pair of ADC instances using Citrix ADM. For more information, see Citrix ADC high-availability.

Perform the following steps to create a HA pair of ADC instances in Citrix ADM:

  1. Navigate to Networks > Instances > Citrix ADC.

  2. Select an ADC instance from the list with which you want to create a HA pair.

    The selected instance becomes a primary instance in the HA pair.

  3. Click Select Action > Create HA Pair.

  4. In Instance Selection, perform the following steps:

    1. In Secondary IP Address, click to select a secondary instance.

    2. Select an ADC instance that you want to configure as secondary in the HA pair.

    3. Optional, select Turn on INC(Independent Network Configuration) mode if you have the HA pair instances in two subnets.

    4. Click Next.

    Select secondary instance

  5. In Execute, you can decide to create a HA pair now or later.

    1. In Execution Mode, select one of the following execution modes:

      • Now - Select this option to create a HA pair now.

      • Later - Select this option to create a HA pair on specific date and time.

    2. If you have selected Later in the Execution Mode list, select Execution Date and Start Time when you want to execute this task.
