[slurm-users] Slurmdbd High Availability

I think you mean both slurmctld servers are pointing the one slurmdbd 

Ole is right about the usefulness of HA, especially on slurmdbd, as 
slurm will cache the writes to the database if it is down.

To do what you want, you need to look at configuring your database to be 
HA. That is a different topic and would be dictated by what database 
setup you are using. Understand the the backend database is a tool used 
by slurm and not part of slurm. So any HA in that are needs to be done 
by the database.

Once that is done, merely have 2 separate slurmdbd servers, each 
pointing at the HA database. One would be primary and the other a 
failover (AccountingStorageBackupHost). Although, technically, they 
would both be able to be active at the same time.
