Admin Node redundancy

A StorageGRID Webscale system can include multiple Admin Nodes. This provides you with the redundancy of multiple IP addresses from which you can to sign in to StorageGRID Webscale system and perform various monitoring and configuration procedures.

Having multiple Admin Nodes provides you with the capability to continuously monitor and configure your StorageGRID Webscale system in the event that an Admin Node fails. If an Admin Node becomes unavailable, web clients can reconnect to any other available Admin Node and continue to view and configure the system. Meanwhile, attribute processing continues, alarms are still triggered, and related notifications sent. However, multiple Admin Nodes does not provide failover protection except for notifications and AutoSupport messages. Alarm acknowledgments made from one Admin Node are not copied to other Admin Nodes.
