Preferred active repository
When you configure Tableau Server you have the option to specify a node as the preferred active repository. When Tableau Server is configured for repository failover, the preferred active repository node is the one used for the active repository. This is an optional step, and if you do not specify a preferred active repository node, Tableau Server will select the active repository node on startup.
To configure the preferred active repository, use the
tsm configuration set command to configure the
tsm configuration set -k pgsql.preferred_host -v "<host_name>"
host_name is case-sensitive and must match the node name shown in the output of
tsm status -v.
Configure a preferred active repository node if you want Tableau Server to select a specific node on startup. You might want to do this if you have a particular server you want to use for your active repository (a computer with more disk space or memory for example), or if you are using custom administrative views. Custom administrative views have embedded connection information that refers to the repository for which you created the views.

The failoverrepository Command
If failover occurs and your passive repository becomes the active repository, it remains the active repository until either Tableau Server restarts or you use the
tsm topology failover-repository command to switch back. Specify the repository you want to be the active one, or specify that the preferred active repository (if configured) should be made active again. For more information, see tsm topology failover-repository.
