Symptoms

In 7.3 of BRM, in a prepaid high-availability+MultiDB configuration environment, when the CM tries to failover to the second entry of a secondary DB dm_pointer (for instance, the secondary TIMOS for database 0.0.0.2), it uses the second entry of the primary DB dm_pointer instead (i.e. the dm_pointer for database 0.0.0.1).

EXPECTED BEHAVIOUR

The CM connects to the second dm_pointer entry for DB 0.0.0.2 and starts normally.

STEPS

The issue can be reproduced with the following steps:

1. Install a multiDB + HA standard system with at least 2 schemas (0.0.0.1 & 0.0.0.2)
2. Startup the DMOs and all DMT (primary & secondary for 0.0.0.1 & for 0.0.0.2)
3. Configure a CM dm_pointer entry for db 0.0.0.2 to try the secondary DMT first.

RESULT

The CM cannot start.
