The MP Replica Doc
I love MP Replicas and have mentioned them before:
- How Replicas help you to scale
- BDNA Guru Session
- Guru Blog Follow-Up with some CM07 notes
- MPLIST\CERT Issues with Replicas
Well here is a document fellow CM MVP Kent Agerlund has written. It's in the lab format from the CM12 course he teaches (which I highly recommend). This document also shows how to configure the BGB service - recently renamed to Client Notification in SP1. While the MS online documentation is pretty good for setting this up, it still reads a bit muddy as they don't make it totally clear that in 99.999% of cases, the replica should go on the MP itself for the benefit of resiliency, not to yet another server in the mix that could go down and end client communications. This document shows how to put that replica on the MP itself.
Thanks to Kent for letting this document go public. Our hope is that it gets more people to start using replicas.
