We are running Icinga 2.6.2 and we have a distributed HA setup, as per the following description:
The only difference, is that we use a master slave MariaDB setup.
Now, there are few things I am unsure right now and would like to clear up:
1. In the IDO setup:
I do not see the enable_ha attribute.
Is this mandatory to have a HA setup of the icinga?
The ido-mysql feature is enabled on both masters.
2. Is there a way to have a "preferred" active end point in the cluster? Or how is the mechanism working in deciding who is the active endpoint at a given time?
In the health page of the icinga I see the following stats:
Program Version v2.6.2
Program Start Time 2017-12-19 15:45:32
Last Status Update 0m 6s ago
Last External Command Check 0m 6s ago

Global Host Event Handler N/A
Active Endpoint node2-name.fqdn
icinga has been up and running with PID 4980
Is this a proper/normal output?
