DAG preferred node not working as it used to...
DAG has 2 passive nodes for backup. node1 is a media server, node 2 isnt.
Hence preferred list is node1,node2.
Historically if the backup had issues with a db on node1 it would revert to node 2. When node 1 was healthy, one had to remove node2 from the preferred servers list to force all backups back to node1. It worked.
Now Ive got a new scenario: node2 was being permanently used for whatever reason, so I removed it from preferred servers and the overnight backup worked.
I now add back in node 2 and the backup has now reverted to node 2, not what I want.
Any ideas? Maybe it distinguishes between full and incrmental : i am fairly sur eboth he full and the incr ran on node 2.
The BUG I have with 'preferred servers' is it isnt honoured consistently, it gets overridden by "what worked last time" according to my observations.
Im on 7504 solaris master.
