Is it possible for Commvault to track the Master node in a PostgreSQL configuration?
I am aware that the backup can be performed from the Standby node. The customer has several Postgresql instances in the environment, some have more than one standby node in the replication setup.
They make use of an application called Cluster Control for the management, configuration and monitoring of the servers and database instances. This includes automatic fail over.
If a backup is initiated on a node that is not the master then the backup will fail with something like “Unable to put cluster in backup mode”.
I get by this by disabling the backup activity on the client but this is not ideal with when there is multiple db’s in play.
Any advice will be appreciated.
