Nope. That is a decision you need to make in your application. You will
need to write the code that walks a list (or array or whatever your
favorite structure is) of connection strings trying each one in sequence
until you get a good connection. It's much more flexible this way as your
application should ALWAYS know which server it is connected to and could
make some very complex choices based on that and any other information you
can gather. Coding a failover routine into the communications library is
possible but you lose a lot of what I think of as "situational awareness"
which is critical to any application that actively manages it's own
Did I make sense or make it worse?
