There are 2 primary options:
- Use existing HA infrastructure platform options within your datacenter to replicate the server and do automatic failover
- Implement BigFix DSA… though this is a failover, not a true HA. Endpoints themselves will failover automatically, but any API calls or connections to the sever (ex. the console) would need to be redirected to the DSA.
From talking with various BigFixers, you’ll hear different things on pros/cons and amount of customers they see using each option. I do get the sense that most people go with option 1 these days, though we chose option 2. Primarily because, HCL states they will not officially support #1 and being new to BigFix (at the time) we went with #2 as we felt more comfortable with being officially supported.
At this point, I would probably consider option #1 first though we have had good success thus far with DSA.
