Cluster failover from GUI

In locally managed appliances there is a possibility to force cluster fail over from the GUI. Such one is missing when they are centrally managed. Any particular reason for that?

Because you can use the Dashboard, i would suppose ! If you compare Advanced Settings you will see that most of them are not available for centrally managed SMBs as you will use Dashboard or SMS files to achive the changes. The failover is discussed here:  1400 Manual Cluster Failover

Re: Cluster failover from GUI

Thanx for the reply but I was hoping for more technical explanation why this particular feature is not available in WebUI. I do know how to do manual fail-over but that wasn't my actual question. It is sometimes convenient to do it through the WebUI.

Re: Cluster failover from GUI

You are welcome - i admit that i do not like if the identical function is available in three different ways at the same time. So here we have CLI and Dashboard, WebGUI would be the third possibility. I mostly refrain from using Embedded GAiA WebGUI as this slows down SMBs a lot...

Re: Cluster failover from GUI

I have my reasons to allow some people to reboot the appliance or fail-over the cluster (per my instruction) but don't want to give them SSH access. I'd love to see a way to define roles in WebUI but that is probably out of scope. That's why I asked.
