Are you asking for Best practices for ESM 6.8-HA in general or only best practices regarding specifically high availability?

Hi David, Thanks for the reply, as told I installed it in a VM environment, so just curious to know if any suggestion is there to keep it healthy. As of now everything installed but due to license issue the secondary node is showing as offline and replication is not happening, so I am checking with HP for the license issue. This ArcSight HA is new and so would be good if you please share your suggestion here. Thanks in advance.

I have attached few documents which will give you a brief overview of ESM 6.8. Its functionality with regards to HA and how to keep up the health check.

Both documents are available on Protect724 and it is a better practice to link to them rather than attach them. It would be great if you make this change.

Took a look at ESM_HA_UsersGuide_1.0.pdf, and... wow.

The execute permission for /sbin should be set on the secondary as it is on the primary:

chmod 777 /sbin

Are you guys serious?

Nobody should ever do this on an any *nix system. It's certainly not something that should ever be found in the documentation for a security product.

I don't understand how making /sbin world writable made it in the final docs. Definitely feels like the solution is half-baked with garbage like this.
