Synchronizing Configuration Files in a High Availability Setup

Oct 28, 2013

In a high availability (HA) set up, the primary NetScaler appliance in the HA pair automatically synchronizes with the secondary appliance in the pair. In the synchronization process, the secondary copies the primary's /nsconfig/ssl/ directory, which is the default location for storing the certificates and keys for SSL transactions. Synchronization occurs at one-minute intervals and every time a new file is added to the directory.

To synchronize files in a high availability setup by using the command line interface

At the command prompt, type the following command:

sync HA files [<Mode> ]

Example

 sync HA files SSL

To synchronize files in a high availability setup by using the configuration utility

Navigate to Traffic Management > SSL and, in the Tools group, select Start SSL certificate, key file synchronization for HA.
