Here’s a sample PUT request that creates an active/active link named MA-CA between the local HCP system, hcp-ma.example.com, and a remote HCP system named hcp-ca.example.com. The link definition is in an XML file named MA-CA.xml. The request is made using a system-level user account that includes the administrator role.
