Adding a Management Server to an Active SSR Cluster

Note: This procedure makes the following assumptions:

Caution: 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:

  1. Select the client node you want to host the new management server, and configure the management server.

    See Configuring the Management Servers in the SSR Cluster (SRC CLI).

  2. Commit the configuration.

    See Committing a Configuration and Exiting Configuration Mode.

  3. Place the database into maintenance mode.

    See Placing the SSR Database into Maintenance Mode (SRC CLI).

  4. Disable the component database on all management servers in the cluster (one by one).

    See Disabling the SSR Database (SRC CLI).

  5. Enable the component database on all management servers in the cluster (one by one).

    See Enabling the SSR Database (SRC CLI).

  6. Restart the component database and all SSR client components on all client nodes in the cluster (one by one).

    See Restarting the SSR Database (SRC CLI).

    See Enabling SRC Components.

  7. Verify the cluster configuration changes by viewing the status of the database.

    See Viewing the Status of the SSR Cluster (SRC CLI).

  8. Place the database into production mode.

    See Placing the SSR Database into Production Mode (SRC CLI).
