When verifying and testing the automated failover, it is important to verify and test all functionality utilized within your Alteryx Server environment. This would include, but not be limited to: 

Verify the AlteryxService.exe has started on the new “Owner” node (manual failover):  

  1. Open Task Manager.  

  1. Switch to the Services tab.  

  1. Verify the AlteryxService.exe status is Running

Verify the AlteryxService.exe has stopped on the old “Owner” node (manual failover):  

  1. Open Task Manager.  

  2. Switch to the Services tab.  

  1. Verify the AlteryxService.exe status is Stopped.  

Test the execution of Alteryx Workflows/Analytic Apps:  

  1. On-demand Workflow/Analytic App executions (Gallery).  

  1. Scheduled Workflow/Analytic App executions.  

  1. Workflows/Analytics App utilizing Run As credentials and/or requiring users to specify their credentials.
