Hi
thank you for your reply.I have read the link information before.My key point is that i don't find the implementation of server none-transparent redundancy in UA server SDK.I just get some configuration and some node properties in loadConfiguration() and startup.For example,if redundancy server runs as cold mode,endpoint shold not be opened and can't be registered into LDS.All the implementation should be done by user or I am definitely wrong about this?Any help will be appreciated.

Hi,

The non transparent redundancy in OPC UA provides only the information about the other servers in the redundant set and the ServiceLevel that indicates the best available server.

The information about the server in the redundant set and the redundancy mode can be provide through the configuration parameters. There is not much more the SDK can do.

The ServiceLevel must be calculated and set by your back-end system.
The decision if a server can be operational must be also done by your back-end system.

Any synchronization between the servers on OPC UA level for transparent redundancy or non-transparent with HotAndMirrored mode requires an additional redundancy module for the SDK.

Hi,
Thanks for your explanation.
As you said " Any synchronization between the servers on OPC UA level for transparent redundancy or non-transparent with HotAndMirrored mode requires an additional redundancy module for the SDK". The additional redundancy module for the SDK is free? or what's the fee?

Hi,

The redundancy module is planned as add-on module that requires an additional license.
This module is not released yet and only available for prototype customers at the moment.

But this module is not required for the normal non-transparent redundancy.

Hello baldo,

the OPC UA redundancy modes are described in detail here:
