High Availability Installations and Upgrades

LogRhythm’s High Availability solutions are architected to meet the specific requirements of organizations that need access to critical log and event data at all times. All LogRhythm appliances are built with onboard redundancy for maximum fault tolerance, but some enterprises require an even greater level of guaranteed availability.

Starting with LogRhythm 7.8, the High Availability (HA) and Disaster Recovery (DR) software was decoupled from the SIEM software. There will no longer be a new upgrade package provided for HA/DR with every SIEM release.

The Web Console is supported in High Availability environments (PM/XM) where each Web Console instance is run as Active/Active. In this configuration, the Web Console indices should be configured on a non-replicated disk such as C: or T:.

Release Notes



Disaster Recovery

Description: In Disaster Recovery Environments, LR SQL connections can timeout when using Windows Auth and Shared IP.

Details: This issue is being caused by Windows Auth services attempting to perform Kerberos authentication with a connection string which does not have a valid SPN failing. On failover, the DR Failover IP is forcefully registered in Consul Keyspace. This is intentional and working as intended by Windows Auth.

Workaround: Register SPN for the DR Failover IP in the active directory, or change the “EMDB Server” in Configuration Manager to a DNS name following any failover/back event.
