Solution
 1. Can OFSAA applications be deployed on a clustered environment in an active-active mode?
 2. Do you need to change the host name to provide access to the secondary node?
 3. How do you activate the passive node in the case of a primary node failure?
 4. What is the "OFSAA GLIP" referred to in Step 4?
 5. Regarding the entry in the /etc/hosts file, are the values "ofss12345" and "glip1" hard-coded?  Or can you put other values?
 6. What happens if the ACTIVE node suddenly fails?  Is the PASSIVE node automatically started?
 7. What is the procedure if you have OFSAA node A ACTIVE and OFSAA node B PASSIVE and you want to change B to ACTIVE and A to PASSIVE?
 8. Does the Load Balancer need to be on one of the OFSAA servers or on a separate machine?
 9. Will the end-users be able to access the OFSAA application during the process of changing the ACTIVE/PASSIVE OFSAA nodes?
 10. Is the F5 Load Balancer compatible with the HA configuration? Are there any instructions on how to configure it?
