Define ECP servers.


[ECPServers]    Name=Address,Port, MirrorConnection


Entries in [ECPServers] define the address and port of the ECP server to connect to and the way in which connections should be redirected if the ECP server is a mirror primary. (See Configuring Application Server Connections to a Mirror in the “Mirroring” chapter of the High Availability Guide for important information about configuring a mirror primary as a data server.)

  • Address – Address of the ECP server to connect to.

  • Port – Port # of the ECP server to connect to.

  • MirrorConnection – Behavior when connecting to a mirror primary. Default is 0 (or blank), indicating that the data server is not a mirror member. A value of 1 indicates the ECP server is a mirror failover member, and the mirror connection redirects to whichever member is primary in the event of a failover. A value of -1 indicates the ECP server is either a failover member or DR async, and the mirror connection is restricted to that specific ECP server; if the ECP server becomes the backup member, it does not accept the connection until it becomes primary.

Changing This Parameter

On the ECP Settings page of the Management Portal (System Administration > Configuration > Connectivity > ECP Settings) is a list of ECP data servers. Select Add Remote Data Server to add a new ECP data server.


You cannot set the MirrorConnection property to -1 from the Management Portal.

Instead of using the Management Portal, you can change ECPServers in the Config.ECPServers class (as described in the class reference) or by editing the CPF in a text editor (as described in the Editing the Active CPF section of the “Introduction to the Configuration Parameter File” chapter in this book).
