SetCloudArbiter task

Sets the cloud arbiter.

Syntax 1 (SQL)
CALL DBCloud.SetCloudArbiter ( server=server )
Syntax 2 (Cloud Command utility)
dbcloudcmd run SetCloudArbiter server
  • server

    The cloud server to set as cloud arbiter. Accepts a search query that identifies one cloud server, for example a cloud server name or ID. (Required)

Required privileges



There can only be one cloud arbiter. To change the cloud arbiter, set another cloud server as the cloud arbiter; the previous cloud server relinquishes the arbiter role.

Setting the cloud arbiter can result in the cloud being unavailable for a short time.

A cloud arbiter always uses the fixed TCP/IP, HTTP, and HTTPS ports that the cloud server was using when it was set as cloud arbiter.

A cloud arbiter must be set before a second cloud partner can be defined.


Run the following task to set the cloud server my-server#3 as cloud arbiter:

dbcloudcmd run SetCloudArbiter server="my-server#3"
