Article Number000091378
EnvironmentProduct: OpenEdge
Version: 11.x
OS: All supported platforms
Question/Problem Description
Steps to ReproduceFor Windows platforms:
1. run kbsetup.bat script in proenv ( unzip in WRKDIR )
@echo on
mkdir source target aiarch
call proshut source\source -by
call proshut target\target -by
del /Q source\*.*
del /Q target1*.*

copy source
copy target

call prostrct create source\source
call procopy %DLC%\sports2000 source\source
call probkup source\source source_zero
call rfutil source\source -C aimage begin
call rfutil source\source -C aiarchiver enable
call proutil source\source -C enableSiteReplication source
call probkup source\source incremental source_incr

call prostrct create target\target
call prorest target\target source_zero
call prorest target\target source_incr
call rfutil target\target -C aimage begin
call rfutil target\target -C aiarchiver enable
call proutil target\target -C enableSiteReplication target

2. Configure source and target databases in OEM.

3. Start both source and target databases from OEM

4. Initiate fail-over transition
dsrutil source\source -C transition failover

5. When transition is finished, notice the OEM is no longer in communication with the target or source databases.
Clarifying Information
Error Message
Defect/Enhancement Number
The startup parameters for both target and source after failover transition need to specify the parameters which allow
the databases to reconnect to OEM.
