This is a question I get every now and then and since I didn’t see it spelled out anywhere I thought I’d go ahead and answer it here. The question is whether or not Opalis 6.3 supports clustering of the Integration or Management server, and if so is that recommended.
The short answer to that is no, it’s not supported, and it is not required as the Action Servers provide their own failover/high availability mechanisms and the Management Server is not required for policy execution – only for Client access which is not something that would normally be considered mission critical.
For additional insight into how failover in Opalis works see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg464926.aspx.
Hope that helps!
