Is there any way of disabling the web server from automatically going in to the installer when it cannot find the database? I really don't want users to see the installer at any time.
I have a scenario where users connect to 2 web servers via a URL that is linked to an F5 load balancer and these web servers connect to a mirrored SQL instanse spanning 2 sites. In order to test BCP I have to failover from one site to another. In the process of failing over SQL if a user tries to connect to the web server and the database is unavailable then the installer will automatically start. I would prefer just to receive an error message telling the user to refresh the browser or contact support. Administrators could then connect to the specific installer URL if there is a genuine problem.
What do you think?
