How to redirect control clients to specific Primary and Standby servers ?

By default client established connection either to primary or standby servers, However Control clients
connection can be prioritized to connect either to prirmary or standby during startup.
This can be achieved by settings two citect .ini parameters in clients ini files.
[Type.ClusterName.ServerName]Priority
[Type.ClusterName.ServerName]DisableConnection
Here is an example to do this :-
- On Client PC citect.ini is set with priority as 1 for primary and for standby as 2.
- When Primary and Standby both are online, and as primary has the highest priority , Clients will
connect to primary first.
-When a primary server has the parameters [Type.ClusterName.ServerName]Priority=1 and
[Type.ClusterName.ServerName]DisableConnection = 0 and a control client cannot establish a
connection to the primary server, the control clients will switch to the standby server with its
parameters set at [Type.ClusterName.ServerName]Priority=2 and
[Type.ClusterName.ServerName]DisableConnection = 0. When the primary server is restored, the
control clients will switch back to the primary server since it has a higher priority.
For Alarm and Trends components on Client , set below settings in citect.ini file for Server 1 as
primary and Server 2 as standby.
[Alarm.ABUDHABI.SERVER1_Alarm]
DisableConnection = 0
Priority = 1
[Alarm.ABUDHABI.SERVER2_Alarm]
DisableConnection = 0
Priority = 2
[Trend.ABUDHABI.SERVER1_Trend]
DisableConnection = 0
Priority = 1
[Trend.ABUDHABI.SERVER2_Trend]
DisableConnection = 0
Priority = 2
