is it possible ?

Post by An00b » Sun Jan 21, 2007 10:57 am

hi all, i found this forum at google,

i've a question,

is it possible, when you have a network (2 linked unrealircd servers) and 1 server gets down, that automaticly all users connect to the other server (the server that up is) it would be great if that's possible, because you have never downtime. Somebody knows that??

Kind regards,

An00b

Firstly the Modules board would be the wrong board to post in for this.

Secondly as far as i know there is no way to achieve what you want to do.

There is a way to spread the load using the DNS and a round robbin host (see the FAQ's for more information on that) but to my knowledge there is no way to direct users to 1 server if another is down.

Yes i am sure about it. If you try to connect to a server via DNS host or IP and the servers down there will be nothing to redirect you to any other server.

the closest you can come is the m_jumpserver module, which will instuct users to go to the other server.

Unfortunately, this module will ONLY work if:
1) You users are all using mIRC on that server
2) An oper does the commant before the server goes down.

The module will NOT WORK for:
1) Crashes
2) Connection failures
3) Hosting failures
4) New connections
Or any other unpredictable failure

Like Jobe said, the best thing you can do is set up a DNS round robin. If your DNS service does not provide round robins, you should switch to one who does. ZoneEdit provides round robins, free of charge. (http://www.zoneedit.com)

BigBen, no offence intended but what you just posted had already been mentioned by Stealth so was pretty much a waste of time posting again.
