But the one time I had this situation happen (SyncTarget is primary), the primary was unable to keep up with the requests from clients. Load average climbed into the 900+ range, just before the server completely froze and had to be rebooted. Not a good situation. I still say it's a bad idea to let a SyncTarget be primary, even if it is technically possible. (I'm not claiming to be an expert, just speaking from one bad experience.) alex
