Most high-availability (HA) solutions currently used are based on the pre-configuration done by human administrators. If the configuration between machines participating in the HA cluster can be automated, services clustered can be provided more efficiently. For realizing this concept, the server agent and service description server (SDS) are designed and implemented in this paper. The server agent exchanges several messages with other servers and SDS. SDS is the central server that manages
