Jira fail over configuration

Hi community, do you have any recommendation and tutorial for configuring Jira software with fail over for linux? Maybe Pacemaker? Any other third party?

Hi @William Castillo

I can share you my experience to do JIRA failover on linux roughly.

  • We setup JIRA on different locations, the primary is on and secondary is off. 
  • We set DataGuard for DB data synchronisation (real-time). So data in both servers will be always the same.
  • We set Rsync (every 15 mins) for data file replication (<JIRA_HOME>/data/).
  • When JIRA failover is required, primary server will be stopped and start JIRA service in secondary server and then re-indexing is required on secondary server. 

@William Castillo

So data is the only required dir under jirahome?  Not plugins, caches (maybe that is the re-indexing that happens).  What about license file like mentioned in dbconfig.xml?  This might end up being more simple than expected.

Thank you for the great details.  We already had the DB replication setup and were trying to determine if sync'n the jirahome (was going to entire dir) would be OK or if there were other issues that would come up along the way. 

Thanks for the reply, you are a ninja.
