Notifying Replica RADIUS Servers
Under normal circumstances, a replica server connects to its primary server every hour to check whether a new replication package replica.ccmpkg file has been published. If necessary, a network administrator can manually notify a replica server to download and install the current configuration package from the primary server. Manual notification informs replica servers a new configuration package is available for download. It is useful when network issues prevent the automatic download and installation of a configuration package when it is first published, and the configuration on the replica no longer matches the configuration on the primary server.
You can display the Server List page in Web GUI to determine the status of your replica servers.
Notification only informs replica servers a new configuration package is available for download. The configuration package must first be created by publishing the configuration package. See Publishing Server Configuration Information.
To notify replica servers that new configuration information has been published, using the Web GUI:
- Select RADIUS Configuration > Replication.
The Server List page (Figure 120) appears.
- Select the replica server entry you want to notify.
- Click Notify.
The replica server is notified that a new configuration package is available for download. Once the replica server downloads and installs the new configuration package from the primary server, it becomes resynchronized with the primary server.
