Cluster Installation Workflow


The installation workflow follows a list of tasks that must be performed in a specific order to make the Session State Register cluster fully functional. This guide presents groups of related tasks in sequential order.

The high-level view of the installation has several groups of tasks:

  1. Planning—Because a SSR cluster involves four or more servers, planning the cluster topology and each server’s role and setting is essential. Planning is discussed, and a worksheet you can use to plan your installation are in Planning Your Session State Register Cluster.

  2. Before You Begin—The tasks to complete and the information to gather on each server in a cluster before installing software are discussed in detail in Before You Install Software, and in the succeeding chapters that document the optional installation of Signalware that is required to support some features.

  3. Software installation—Unpacking the software package, selecting configuration tasks, and providing settings that are used to set up the servers are discussed in detail in Installing Session State Register Nodes.

  4. Basic configuration—Setting up configuration files for the SSR database is discussed in Customizing the SSR Database Current Sessions Table.
