If my Belise backup server is not online the primary license
server will not start. Is this as designed?
This is as designed behaviour when you have your slip file setup to
include a backup server.
If the backup server is not available then the primary server will
not start. This is as designed. The reason for this is to inform
the administrator that the backup server is not ready or available
therefore ensuring that action is taken to ensure that should the
primary server fail then the backup will be available. To flip side
of this is that the backup server needs to only be available at the
point in time when the primary server is starting up. Should the
backup server be available for the primary server starting and then
fail after the server has restarted, then the primary server will
not know. To combat such a scenario you would need to use a query
function such as the windows SC command line option with the
parameter queryex. For additional details please see the link
