Offline server cache will allow a secondary server to run when the connection from the secondary server to the primary server is lost. Enabling this option will allow a secondary server to run for 14 days while in the offline state.
Enabling Offline Server Cache
- To enable offline server cache, select the server in the tree; this will display the server sub-menu.
- On the General setup tab, select Enable offline cache.
- Click Save.
Specifying cache window
The cache window decides how long the data is cached. For example, if this value is set to 2, and the secondary server loses connectivity to the primary server, then all users that authenticated in the last 2 hours since the loss of connectivity can log in. The value specified will be counted in hours. However, this period may not be longer than 14 days, as Offline server cache mode allows the secondary server to run up to 14 days in an offline state.
