Disable warm standby for Splunk SOAR (On-premises)

Disable warm standby to perform the following tasks:

  • Perform system maintenance
  • Configure a backup or restore your system
  • Upgrade

If you want to enable warm standby again after disabling it, you must recreate it. See Create a warm standby.

To disable warm standby, you must run commands on both the primary Splunk SOAR (On-premises) system and the warm standby system.

  1. Log in to the primary system from the command line as either the root user or as a user with sudo permissions.
  2. On the primary system, run the following command to turn off warm standby.
    phenv python /<PHANTOM_HOME>/bin/setup_warm_standby.pyc --primary-mode --off
  3. Log in to the warm standby system from the command line as either the root user or as a user with sudo permissions.
  4. On the warm standby system, run the following command to turn off warm standby.
    phenv python /<PHANTOM_HOME>/bin/setup_warm_standby.pyc --standby-mode --off
  5. Continuing on the warm standby system, run the following command to stop all services.
    /<PHANTOM_HOME>/bin/stop_phantom.sh

Warm standby is now disabled, and cron jobs are removed to prevent rsync jobs from running.
