Managing Policy Broker Replication
Policy Broker Replication | Web Protection Solutions | v8.4, v8.5 | 30-Nov-2018
Policy Broker is responsible for managing access to both policy data (including clients, filters, and exceptions) and global settings for web protection solutions.
You have the option to deploy Policy Broker in either a standalone or replicated configuration.
*
In a standalone configuration, there is one Policy Broker for the entire deployment.
*
In a replicated configuration, there is one primary Policy Broker, to which configuration and policy changes are saved, and one or more replica instances, each with their own read-only copy of the configuration and policy data.
*
*
*
 
Important 
A replicated environment requires bidirectional communication on port 6432 between the primary Policy Broker and each of its replicas. Make sure that your firewalls are configured to allow this communication.
You can configure how each Policy Server instance in your deployment connects to Policy Broker, including:
*
*
For each Policy Server, you can manage a Policy Broker connection list. If Policy Server cannot connect to the first Policy Broker in the list, it attempts to connect to the second, then the third, and so on, until it establishes a successful connection.
By default, Policy Server attempts to connect to the Policy Broker instance on the same machine (if one exists) first. This is true when Policy Server is installed:
*
*
If Policy Broker is installed on a machine that already hosts a Policy Server instance, the Policy Server is not automatically updated to attempt to connect to the new Policy Broker first.
Manage Policy Broker connection lists on the Web > Settings > General > Policy Brokers page in the Forcepoint Security Manager.
