How to properly setup Cloud Director Failover

Hi,

We have 1 primary cell and 2 standby cells. (cellA, cellB, CellC)

Performing a manual switchover works fine.

When simulating a failure of the primary cellA, i see in the VAMI that the system has switchover to another cell cellB, great.

But i cannot access the webportal page, get error: Failed to start: An error occurred during the initialization. Accessing the application through an unsupported public URL or poor connectivity might cause this error.

To fix i had to SSH to cellB and manually change all the public addresses to point to cellB and then the webportal page was accessible again.

I think I am missing something to configure for this failover.

Can anyone help or suggestions ?

You mentioned public URLs.

Is this of any use?

Yes, that is what i already did to be able to gain access to the new primary cell.

But, i cant seem to figure out why this is happening. Manual switchover works fine, but when an automatic failover occurs i get this error.
