Comm daemon and failover

Hi,
Do we need set PBS_COMM_ROUTERS parameter in pbs.conf on secondary host in failover configuration?

No, in case of failover PBS_COMM_ROUTERS does not need to be set

Thanks for reply.

OK, so it is normal that comm daemon do not start on secondary server when primary is running and it is active:

[root@secondary ~]# /etc/init.d/pbs start
Starting PBS
PBS comm
pbs_comm: another PBS comm router running at the same port
PBS server
[root@secondary ~]#

???

Ah no, that error you are seeing means something is occupying the same port on the machine “Secondary”. netstat -pant | grep 17001 should show you what process is using that port.
