High Availability on normal shutdown

This is a pretty embarrassing question but my Google skills have failed me and I couldn't find an answer in the manual. (Yes, I admit I read the manual 🤯) .

In a HA environment, we have one primary and one secondary, if you stop primary server legitimately, let's say by stopping the service in Sybase Central, do the clients switch over to the secondary as you would expect if the primary server had exploded?

Thanks, Paul

    Hello Paul,

    Yes that is correct the mirror would service the clients since the arbiter will desginate the mirror as the new primary in the scenario where the primary shuts down (or explodes). You can follow the following tutorial and test it for yourself. DocCommentXchange

    Thank you,

    It depends if, for the clients, the parameters used to connect to the servers remain the same when the secondary takes over or not. If the name/IP address of the secondary server is different for the clients, then you need to address this programmatically in your code client side.
