Windows Local Users Are Not Replicated By Neverfail Heartbeat



This knowledgebase article details a know issue when using Neverfail Heartbeat.

More Information

When Neverfail Heartbeat is installed, the Secondary server (and Tertiary, if it exists) are created by cloning the Primary server. Therefore, all the local users from the Primary server will be cloned to the Secondary (and Tertiary).

If new local users are created on the Primary server after the installation of Neverfail Hearbeat, these will NOT be replicated to the other servers. New local users with the same name and  password can be created on the Secondary (and Tertiary), however, these users will have different user ID than the ones on the Primary.

To make sure the users are the same on all servers, including the user ID, the Secondary (and Tertiary) should be recloned from the Primary server. In case of physical servers, the following Knowledgebase articles can be used:
