We needed to provide 100% uptime to users for Internet Access via BorderManager. We are using CLNTrust launching through a script based on group membership. Transparent Proxy is not an option since we want control of who gets out, so Browsers have a proxy set.
SOLUTION: I set up two BorderManager servers, one as a primary Proxy provider, the other is the ref time server and for GroupWise WebAccess. Using NCS, I set up an IP Service to migrate a secondary IP address (the proxy address) from one server to the other and also to run STARTBRD or STOPBRD during failover.
We have 800 people we are pushing through this pair.
(If it has already been done...it was new to me.)
