Synchronizing configuration files in a high availability setup

In a high availability setup, all configuration files are synchronised automatically from the primary node to the secondary node at an interval of one minute. Synchronizing configuration files can be performed manually by using the command line interface or the GUI at either the primary or the secondary node.

Files located on the secondary that are specific to the secondary (not present on the primary) are not deleted during the synchronization.
