Promoting a Secondary Database to a Primary Role in a Configuration with One Primary Database (SRC CLI)

Although all communities should have two databases with a primary role, if a community includes one database assigned a primary role and another database assigned a secondary role, promote the database assigned a secondary role to a primary role.

To promote a Juniper Networks database from a secondary role to a primary role:

  1. On the database that has a secondary role, set the role to primary.

    For example, if the database on C2 has a secondary role:

    user@C2# edit system ldap server community [edit system ldap server community] user@C2# set role primary user@C2# commit

     

    C2 already has C1 configured as primary neighbor.

  2. On the existing database that has a primary role, remove the neighbor as secondary and add it as primary.

    For example, to remove C2 as a secondary neighbor and add it as a primary neighbor for the database on C1:

    user@C1# edit system ldap server community [edit system ldap server community] user@C1# set primary-neighbors C2 user@C1# commit
  3. (Optional if you have two databases with a primary role in a community) Switch the role of the database that originally had a secondary role back to secondary:
    [edit system ldap server community] user@C2# set role secondary user@C2# commit
