Configures a mirror primary as a server to access mirrored databases. In a failover or disaster recovery, the connection is redirected. By default, not selected.
Note: If you have configured a mirror VIP, do not configure a mirror aware Web Gateway, which causes the Web Gateway to ignore the VIP. Instead, simply configure the Web Gateway to connect to the VIP like any other client. In general, use of a mirror aware Web Gateway is the appropriate choice only in unusual circumstances.
To configure, enter the IP address of one of the failover members. From this failover member, the Web Gateway obtains a list of the failover and disaster recovery (DR) async members in the mirror and connects to the current primary based on this list (and not the VIP even if one is configured). The CSP connection fails until a primary is found.
Once the connection is established, if the mirror fails over, the Web Gateway changes the connection to the new primary. If no primary can be found among the failover members, the Web Gateway attempts to find one among the DR asyncs in the list, which enables it to reestablish the connection when a DR async is promoted to primary in a disaster recovery situation.
