  3. In the Monitor PC dropdown list, select the name of the Computer object that is to be under control (1).
  4. In the Expect reconnection (sec) field, specify the time period (in seconds) at the end of which configuration is transferred to a standby Server when the Server connection fails (2).
  5. In the Objects table, specify the list of configuration objects (that are to be transferred to a standby Server if connection fails) of the main Server:
    1. Manually one by one:
      1.  In the Type dropdown list, select the object type (3).
      2. In the Number dropdown list, select the object ID (4).
      3. The Name field is automatically filled in with the name of a corresponding object (5).
      4. Repeat steps i-iii for all objects (that are to be transferred to a standby Server if connection fails) in the objects tree of a Server under control.
