Install additional servers

This topic explains how to install additional Deployment Automation servers (servers 2 through n) for a high availability (active-active) implementation.

To install additional servers:

  1. UNIX/Linux: Make sure you have mounted the network share with the Deployment Automation profile:

    1. Open the /etc/fstab file for editing.

    2. Add a line for your profile share, for example:

      Copy code
      //serverName/Temp/sharedProfile /mnt/localProfileDir cifs _netdev, 
      uid=1000,iocharset=utf8,sec=ntlm,username=user@domain.com, 
      password=password,noserverino 0 0
    3. Save the file.

  2. Run the installer and set the Server Install Location field to the shared Deployment Automation user profile.

  3. Select the Use existing settings option so that the installation will use the same database as the first server installation.

  4. Update the Common Tomcat set environment:

    Windows
    1. Navigate to the Common Tomcat bin directory, for example:

      C:\Program Files\Micro Focus\common\tomcat\<Tomcat-version>\bin

    2. Open the setenv.bat file and add the following property to the line JAVA_OPTS=...

      -Djava.rmi.server.hostname=<ip_servern>

      where <ip_servern> is the IP address of the second or nth server.

    3. Restart Common Tomcat.

    UNIX/Linux
    1. Navigate to the Common Tomcat bin directory, for example:

      /opt/MicroFocus/da/common/tomcat/<Tomcat-version>/bin

    2. Open the setenv.sh file and add the following property to the line CATALINA_OPTS=...

      -Djava.rmi.server.hostname=<ip_servern>

      where <ip_servern> is the IP address of the second or nth server.

    3. Restart Common Tomcat.

After installing servers, install and configure agents. See High availability configurations.
