Transition Between DR States Through the Configuration File

Change disaster recovery states using the configuration file when the server is new and starts for the first time.
It is possible to transition a server between active and standby states via the
/etc/demisto.conf
configuration file, when the server is new and starts for the first time. It cannot be used at any other time.
You need to set the
server.dr.enabled
configuration property to
true
or
false
. If set to
true
, the server is in DR mode when it starts. If set to
false
, the server is in active mode when it starts.
/etc/demisto.conf
{ "Server":{ "HttpsPort":"443", "dr":{ "enabled":true } }, "db":{ "index":{ "entry":{ "disable":true } } } }
If the DR state of the server is ever transitioned through Cortex XSOAR, the setting is stored in the Cortex XSOAR database rather than in the
demisto.conf
file. The database config setting for
dr.enabled
always takes precedence over
demisto.conf
, and changing the
server.dr.enabled
setting in the
demistor.conf
file has no effect.
In a real disaster recovery scenario, one in which the original production server is unrecoverable, you need to convert the backup server to the new production server and then configure a new backup server.
