Summary

 

bcastaddr is populated with both an ADDRESS_LIST and a SECONDARY_ADDRESS_LIST, but Replicas in the secondary list are never contacted.

 

Issue

 

bcastaddr is populated with both an ADDRESS_LIST and a SECONDARY_ADDRESS_LIST

According to the man page the SECONDARY_ADDRESS_LIST is optional and means addresses following this will only be used if the first attempt to find a server from the ADDRESS_LIST fails.
The problem is that Replicas in the secondary list are never contacted.

 

Resolution / Workaround

 

Check that BoKS version 6.5.3 or later is being used on the Server Agent in question since this functionality was not available in previous versions.
If used in older versions, Replicas in the secondary list are not contacted.

See also bcastaddr man page (for version 6.7).
