I have 3 top level relays, one in each region (NALA, APAC, EMEA). Each has the Affiliation Advertisement list set to “TopLevel” so none of the clients will connect to them.
The second-level relays are manually configured to use the top-level relay in their region as the primary, and one in another region as the secondary. None of the second-level relays have an Affiliation Seek list defined since they’re using manual relay selection.
Today the APAC top-level relay went offline but none of the second-level relays have switched over to the top-level relay that’s defined as their secondary relay. I thought that they would switch after 10 minutes but after nearly an hour I see them still trying to connect to the primary in the APAC region.
What am I missing in this configuration? Is there something else that needs to be configured on the second-level relays in order for them to switch over to a different top-level relay?
