Subject RE: Joined vcenter servers with cloudstack

I'm thinking to use a "http/s" proxy in front of the vcenters if the master fails the proxy
will redirect to the slave.
DNS would be too slow I think.

Thanks for your help.

I haven't tested with vCenter linked mode, but if the second vCenter is using a different
IP, I see it as an issue.

I would suggest you to try using DNS to do the trick, while you are maintaining one vCenter
server, make DNS point to the second one for CloudStack to continue to work
