Setting up AE on distributed Environment

  • 1.  Setting up AE on distributed Environment

    Posted 10-22-2018 07:43 AM

    Dear Experts,

     

    We are working on an upgrade from version 10 to 12. Our current production system is setup with active-active concept.

    But for the new production system , we are planning to have it in a distributed manner. As per the document available in the CA support page, it mentions as "Enter the same port number for the primary work process in all INI files (parameter pwpport=)."

     

    https://docs.automic.com/documentation/webhelp/english/AWA/12.2/DOCU/12.2/AWA%20Guides/help.htm#Installation_Manual/AE/InstalltheAE_DistributedServerEnvironment.htm

     

    Can you explain how the value of this parameter should be set for four servers?

    Should we have like below ?

    ( Host A ) pwpport = hostnameA.2217
    ( Host B) pwpport = hostnameA.2217
    ( Host C ) pwpport = hostnameA.2217
    ( Host D) pwpport = hostnameA.2217

     

    Kindly share your expertise

     

    Thanks and Regards
    Vimal

    Normally the PWP port is 2270, not 2217.  2217 is the default port for the communication process.  And you only have 1 PWP on a system, regardless of how many servers.  I think you would want it set this way on all 4 of your servers.

     

    pwpport=2270

    Hi

     

    Just a hint, if you plan 4 AE Servers I would recommend defining the range for CPs and WPs bigger than default.

     

    e.g. (just an example)

     

    CPs: 12100 - 12199

    PWP: 12200

    WPs: 12201 - 12300

    Agent Ports: 12500 - 12599

    SMGR Ports: 12700 - 12719

     

    cheers, Wolfgang

    Hello,

        What syntax did you finally applied ?

        I'm wondering the same question for our AE running on 2 hosts:

        pwpport=host1:2270 on host1    and    pwpport=host2:2270 on host 2

        or

        pwpport=host1:2270 on host1    and    pwpport=host1:2270 on host 2

     

       Currently the AE is configured as the first option. It works but I think option 2 would have more sense as, in our config,  each time the AE will start the PWP will be on host1:2270.

    Thanks and Regards,

         Anthony.

    Hello,

     

    Thanks for your answer.

    Did you had then to set the bindaddr entry in the  section ?

     

    Regards,

                    Anthony.

    Hi

     

    there is the possibility for a bindaddr entry?

     

    No its lets say a default entry to search for the PWP's port, anyhow which AE server.

     

    In our environment the only differences of both ucsrv.ini's are

     

    nodename=

    cp1=

    ...

    cpxx=

     

    wp1=

    ...

    wpxx=

     

    al even cps and wps run on srv2 and all odd cps and wps run on srv1

     

    cheers, Wolfgang.
