Moving processing to and from a failover server

Failover servers are designed to take over processing in the event that your Ricoh ProcessDirector production server suffers a catastrophic event. Use this procedure to move processing between the Ricoh ProcessDirector production server and the failover server.
To switch Ricoh ProcessDirector processing to and from a failover server:
  1. Log in as the system user (aiw1 is the default) to the server you are moving processing from. If the system is not available (for example hardware failure or if the system is powered down), continue with step 3.If you are moving processing from the production server to the failover server, log in to the production server.If you are moving processing from the failover server to the production server, log in to the failover server.
  2. Open a command line and enter: stopaiw
  3. Log in as the system user (aiw1 is the default) to the server you are moving the processing to.
  4. Enter /opt/infoprint/ippd/bin/changeHostname.pl server_hostname where server_hostname is the name of the server you are moving processing from and press Enter. If you are moving processing from the production server to the failover server, server_hostname is the production server.If you are moving processing from the failover server to the production server, server_hostname is the failover server.
  5. Open a command line and enter: startaiw
