Applies to:

Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 7.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

HA setup will consist of two node servers in an active/passive configuration. This will be accomplished by pointing a Floating IP, which will be used access Jump Server.

There will not be any cluster service running, this two node servers in an active/passive works only as a jump station servers for the other Linux servers.

The idea is to have an alias in the DNS performing load balancing in a Round-robin manner for both virtual IPs. The cluster nodes only receive the connections via SSH and make the SSH to other servers.
