Adding a Management Server to an Active SSR Cluster
This procedure makes the following assumptions:
You are working with an active cluster and the SSR database is in production mode. If you are unsure what mode the database is in, see Viewing the SSR Database Mode (SRC CLI).
The client node is already installed and configured. If you also need to install the client node, use the procedure for Adding Client Nodes to an Active SSR Cluster (SRC CLI).
This procedure requires you to restart the component database on all client nodes and management servers in the cluster, which is a disruptive process. This procedure should be performed only during a maintenance window. Review this procedure in full before proceeding.
To add a management server to a client node in an active cluster:
Select the client node you want to host the new management server, and configure the management server.
Commit the configuration.
Place the database into maintenance mode.
Disable the component database on all management servers in the cluster (one by one).
Enable the component database on all management servers in the cluster (one by one).
Restart the component database and all SSR client components on all client nodes in the cluster (one by one).
Verify the cluster configuration changes by viewing the status of the database.
Place the database into production mode.
