BrokerVM HA cluster

L0 Member

Hi team,

 

I created cluster from scratch and added here 2 brokervm, then for new cluster I assigned dedicated IP address and FQDN, then in local DNS is created A record using ha cluster FQDN and dedicated IP address. Is ti true way? because I tried to install cortex xdr agent to endpoint using HA cluster IP as proxy list but no connection established from endpoint to to brokervm ha cluster. Where is my mistake?

Dear @Sadig 

 

Hope you are doing well, and thank you for reaching out to the Live Community. From the query abouve I see you are trying to create a Broker VM cluster and redirect the endpoint to the cluster. Please find the documentation I have linked below on how to properly set up or configure the HA cluster for Broker VMs. Thank you: 

 

https://docs-cortex.paloaltonetworks.com/r/Cortex-XDR/Cortex-XDR-Prevent-Administrator-Guide/Add-Bro...

 

Once the cluster is formed properly, you should be able to direct the endpoint in the correct direction. Thank you.

Hi Sadig

 

For "active/active" applets that require load balancing, you must install a Load Balancer in your network to distribute the incoming data between the nodes. See the reference here: https://docs-cortex.paloaltonetworks.com/r/Cortex-XDR/Cortex-XDR-Prevent-Administrator-Guide/Broker-...

 

The Load Balancer is not provided with the Broker HA Cluster functionality. This has to be done seperately.

 

Hope that helps. Best Regards

Hi Abdrahman,

Thank you for answering my question.

I already know and have done these parts. Unfortunately, no one can explain the technical details. A separate IP address has been assigned to the HA cluster - should it be registered with a different FQDN in the local DNS?
