Just install BBSA on another server and point it to the same DB.
Thanks for the reply. Is it mandatory to have share file server? Or database will take care everything. I mean we have our scripts in depot. Will it come to DB or Share file server.

There can be only one fileserver, one db and one fileserver.
So you share DB and Fileserver, and its callled multi application servers.
What do you want to do ?

In this scenario, an idea is to have the 'File Server' as a file system mounted NAS or SAN device.
Each Application Server then can be set to "//localhost/<NAS/SAN FS>/storage" and must have an RSCD Agent installed.
The any additional Application Servers or Instances can be added easily.
Also if you have SAN/NAS then this will also be 'redundany' (one would hope) so you then provide a true active/active capability.
1) It is best practice for your file server and app server to be separate, especially for Windows.
2) Have your app servers point to an alias for the fileserver name something like blfs.
3) BLFS resolves to an LB’d VIP that points to two file servers
4) Those two file servers have the same SAN mount (Linux or Windows) or NAS/NFS mount (Linux Only) for the storage folder.
1) your RCP console (BBSA Client) connections should also point to a VIP
2) That VIP should point to both of your Appservers
Thanks for all reply, actually i have separate file server and database , for secondary server as parallel i wanted to get some ideas , that i got. Now i would try and post here if i face any issue.
Thanks for all the replies.
I created now second server and point to the same database / file server , but i want to know how these two server behaves if one of them get failed. Will application be available for the users? If no how would user connect for load balancing?
You would need to have a LB with a VIP in front of the appservers and the users console would need to point to the VIP vs the actual servers. There is also some additional settings you need to change on the appserver to disable verifying the source URL.
Thanks for your reply, Some questions if you do mind
1) How to point VIP for the console in BBSA?
2) How to do additional settings for the appserver?
In fact if you could explain or point me to any doc which gives more details for this that would be really helpful.
Thanks for your all help.
1) In your authentication Profile, just like you did to point the console to your appserver. 2) Read this https://communities.bmc.com/communities/message/96954#96954 3)A lot of your questions are answered in the Best Practices document that is part of the documentation bundle available from the same location you downloaded your BBSA software.
ok Thanks i will take a look at this doc first and come back to the forum if in case of issue.
Thanks a lot for your all help.
I have configured PROD and DR boxes with same DB link and File server sync Job. Please let me know can i start DR service.Should it be running? Does it hurt anything to have it running? What is best practice? I tried to search Best Practice Doc where i downloaded BL v8.0 documentation but did not find. Please let me know where is the Best Practice doc under which pdf?
What do you mean by ‘db link’ and ‘file server sync job’ ?
Can you describe how your env is setup? what is pointing to what ?
db link means my MS sql database instance.
Prod : server1.prod.domain.com (app) database1.prod.domain.com ( MS SQL )
DR : server2.prod.domain.com (app) database1.prod.domain.com ( MS SQL )
File server sync Job from Prod to DR . My question is that when i start DR app server services and run any Job in Prod , it goes automatically sometime to DR Job queue? How it goes automatically load balance the jobs and
Should it be running? Does it hurt anything to have it running? What is best practice? I tried to search Best Practice Doc where i downloaded BL v8.0 documentation but did not find. Please let me know where is the Best Practice doc under which pdf?
