    Hi @JamilAhmed, Need your support to resolve the issue.

    Hi @vadivelan,

    I just tested in my environment with some brokers that are in a DR replication setup and have reproduced the error.

    There are two parts here:

    1. The reconnect parameters you've set that govern how long the services wait for the broker connection to get restored. (You're essentially giving up too quickly.)
    2. Excessive logging when the service gives up connecting but the binder continues to do some work

    For point (1), the settings and resulting behaviour is the same as what @Kaliappans hit in an earlier issue. @marc recommended to adjust them or perhaps even take them out entirely and rely on the defaults instead:

    For point (2), looks like this has been seen before too and is already tracked in a Jira issue: While previously it was reported in the context of a High-Availability switch, your case involves a switch between Replication mates. We'll make sure to cover off all these situations in the behaviour improvement for it. (fyi: @giri, @amackenzie)
