The service availability forum (SAF) has defined a set of service API specifications addressing the growing need of commercial-off-the-shelf high availability solutions. Among these services, the availability management framework (AMF) is the service responsible for managing the high availability of the application services by coordinating redundant application components. To achieve this task, an AMF implementation requires a specific logical view of the organization of the application's services and components known as an AMF configuration. Developing manually such a configuration is a complex, error prone, and time consuming task. In this paper, we present an approach for automatic generation of AMF configurations from a set of requirements given by the configuration designer and the description of the software as provided by the vendor. Our approach alleviates the need of configuration designers dealing with a large number of AMF entities and their relations.
