This variable helps improving server availability in a cluster.

Clusters are designed to improve server availability. To configure an IBM®

Lotus® Domino™ server for clustering, specify a default port in the server's

NOTES.INI file by using this setting: Server_Cluster_Default_Ports=portname.

When you specify a port, you limit cluster replication to that specific port

even if the port has failed. If the setting Server_Cluster_Default_Ports= is

not defined, the standard server search algorithm is used and all ports are

tried. If the designated port fails, that is, the port specified in the

Server_Cluster_Default_Ports= NOTES.INI setting, the server may be accessible

from another port. You can allow the use of other ports by entering this

NOTES.INI setting in the server's NOTES.INI file:

Server_Cluster_Auxilary_Ports=portname. Specify * in the Server_Cluster_Auxili

ary_Ports= setting.

Note If you do not specify a default port, all ports are tried.

Valid values are:

Blank = Do not specify an auxiliary port. The user sees no change in the

existing behavior.

* (asterisk) = All ports are checked if the server specified in the

setting Server_Cluster_Default_Ports= cannot be reached.

List of port names separated by a comma = Specify a comma delimited list of

port names in the Server_Cluster_Auxiliary_Ports= setting. The ports in the

list are checked for the desired server.

UI equivalent:

None, although you can specify this setting in the NOTES.INI Settings tab of the Configuration Settings document in the Domino Directory.
