How to replace an activeGate for oneAgent routing

Should be simple but nowhere to be found in the documentation. How to replace an ActiveGate (used for oneAgent routing).


I suppose best practice is to add a new activeGate, wait for all oneAgents to be informed about this new route. And than you can safely remove the existing activeGate?


Is this a correct assumption? Is cloning a good alternative and what is the time needed for all agents to get the new route?


Please comment!

Hi @henk_stobbe 


Yes, I'd simply add a new AG and make sure it is set to allow agent routing, which is the default option for AG installation. Once deployed, all agents will get the updated list of AGs and you should be able to remove the one you want to decommission. Just make sure all agents will have a route to the new AG, if they cannot reach it due to firewalls or routings restrictions, it won't work of course.


Are you making use of network zones at all? Is the AG you want to remove, part of an NZ?
