Hello everyone,


We have an 8 core ArcGIS Server Advanced License and want to have an high availability enviroment. 


We just one to keep the enviroment working whenever one of the servers goes offline.


We can have two seperate machine for ArcGIS Server and one machine for Web addaptor. Multiple machine deployment scneario looks good, but we're not sure if this scenario works as active passive. So is this going to work? Or is there any documents how it does? 


Multiple machine deployment active active scenario is another alternative. However I guess we'll have to split license to two seperate machines. I also cound find any documents about license issue either.


Single machine deployment active passive scenario is another alternative also. And this one has a huge disadvantege. Which is we don't know how to  keep passive machine updated with the active one.  Besides we would like to learn if the system will be updated when we copy the "config store" and "serverdirectioes" folders to passive machine hourly.
