Environment

Micro Focus Filr
NetIQ Access Manager

Situation

When setting up the Filr NAM integration with a clustered Filr deployment, the configuration does not allow the administrator to specify more than one Filr nodes in the NAM Authentication class. Specifically, when setting up the Authentication Class in NAM Administration Console, the FilrWsURL can only point to one of the Filr application servers. In this setup, if the configured Filr server goes down, users will no longer be able to login and use Filr.

Details about setting up Filr and NAM integration is available in the Access Manager and Filr integration documentation.

Resolution

A fix for this issue is available in the Filr 3.2.1 Update. With the fix in place, the administrator can now specify multiple Filr nodes separated by a comma when setting up the Authentication Class.

For example FilrWsURL=https://192.168.1.99:8443, https://192.168.1.100:8443, https://192.168.1.101:8443
