Is MDC supported for Federation?


Regarding the following two usecases, is it supported or not:

Use Case1
• User is trying to login to application “App1” hosted in Dallas Data Center
• OAM instance in Dallas Data Center is down
• Webgate for App1 sees OAM in Dallas DC is down, hence, re-routes the authentication/authorization request to OAM in the secondary data center
• Is this scenario supported with OAM 11gr2ps2?

Use Case 2: OAM MDC Active-Active Support for Federation
Outcome of discussion:
• OAM supports MDC Active-Active for all authentication and Authorization federation requests, only exception is if an authentication request is initiated at DC1 and in the process DC1 goes down, then the end user will need to re-initiate the authentication request in which case the request will be routed to DC2.
• In this scenario there will be a slight impact to end user experience as they will be prompted to login twice.
• Is global logout supported for federation?
