Can multiple MonitorControllers be running at the same time?
Last Updated July 29, 2014
I would like to run a Production and Backup system simultaneously. Can I run them on the same network?
DLP can not handle multiple MonitorControllers running at the same time. When a MonitorController is started it attempts to connect to all Detection Servers defined in Enforce, and take ownership of them. This means the two Enforce servers will continue to fight for ownership of the Detection Servers causing instability.
Running a test environment is encouraged. But the backup environment must have a firewall that prevents it from accessing the production Detection Servers. Or the MonitorControllers can use different ports. Another option is to disable the Monitor Controller service on the backup Enforce.
