Is it possible to create BSMC 10.01 clusters?

On Page 51 and 57 of the BSMConnector 10.01 user guide there is mention of Policies in Cluster Environmnets.

There is no other mention of clustering configurations throughout the document.  What is the offical supported setup for creting a BSMC Cluster?  Is the clustering method up to you?  Do you need to use a loadblancer and have the loadbalancer monitor the multiple BSMC servers and have it route traffic?

For example we are designing out OMi 10 environemnt and there will be a large need for SNMP policies.  It would be great to have a cluster of BSMC servers that all have the same SNMP policies.  If one BSMC goes down the other node in the clsuter would handle the events or it could round robin them.  

This is also why managing BSMC plocies from OMi would be very helpful.  We could depoly all the SNMP polices we need to all the BSMC servers from OMi 10.

As of now managing BSMC policies from OMi 10.01 is supported. However, any sort of BSMC clustering/load balancing is not.

As Dmitry mentioned, clustering BSMC isn't possible at the moment. To get the redundancy you are wanting, you could install two BSMCs, then create a secondary IP address which opctrapi listens too (because it's listening to all interfaces on port 162) and where you are sending events. Then stop/start the secondary IP interface on either system as required. Not ideal I know, but it might help.

Thanks.
