The first server in the Directory servers list is your default main server. When a Directory failover occurs, the next server in line becomes the new main server (). When the first server is back online after a failover, the default behavior is to keep the current server as the main server and not switch back to the first server. This behavior minimizes system disruptions caused by applications having to disconnect and reconnect to the main server. If this is not the behavior you want for your system, you can change it in the Directory servers tab.
