ObjectServer HADR feature required to use failover pair as DASH/WebGUI HA source

Along with OMNIbus Core 8.1.0.24, DASH 3.1.1.9 and OMNIbus WebGUI 8.1.0.21 an ObjectServer can be used as DASH HA database source.
Unfortunately only a single ObjectServer instance can be configured as a source which will be again a single point of failure.
Something as DB2 HADR is required for the ObjectServer too.
