As part of installing Squared Up you’re asked to specify a management server. A recent shutdown of one of our two data centres highlighted this as an issue – although SCOM and Squared Up are resilient and kept running they weren’t able to communicate with each other because the management server that was specified during setup happened to be the one that was shut down!

Is it possible to use a load balancer (we’ve got F5 Big IPs handy) to create a pool of management servers and use the vIP of that pool as the management server address? Any advice or info gratefully received.
