Managing multi-server environment

ID: 1083101
Languages: EN, DE
Components: EgoSecure Server
Operating system: Windows

Task

Parallel operation of multiple EgoSecure Servers for load balancing or reliability improving.

Solution

The installed EgoSecure version must be identical on all Servers used.
All the Servers must be in one network so that they can communicate with each other.

1. Installing another Server

  1. Install the same Server version as the already installed Server.
  2. During installation, specify the same domain controller, SQL database and the database user as in the initial installation.
    For details about the Server installation, download: EgoSecure Server - Installation guide (sign in required).
⇒ The new Server appears in Console under Administration » Server management » EgoSecure Server.

2. Configuring Server priority

  1. In the Console, under Administration » Server management » EgoSecure Server define the following settings for the additional server:
    1. Server selection method:
      By priority : load distribution by priority in the list or
      Random selection : automatic load distribution
    2. Priority:
      Highlight the entry and click the Up / Down buttons to move the entries and change the priority.
    3. Primary IP range (optional):
      Specify the range of client IP address, which can access the Server.
  2. Save the settings.
  3. If the Own directory mode is used on the first Server:
    Open the AdminTool and enable the "Own Directory" mode support check box.
⇒ EgoSecure Server automatically synchronizes the settings used. The following settings are not synchronized:
  • Administration » Administrator - Tools» Database maintenance and
  • Administration » AD Synchronization » <All settings>
    Are not synchronized to avoid access conflicts. The settings should also only be managed on one Server and not configured on the second Server.
  • Administration » File & License management » Log files » Server
    Are not synchronized to allow separate log settings for each Server.
  • Product settings » Encryption » Files recovery
  • Product settings » Encryption HDD » Helpdesk
