Changing the Settings for a Node in an HAC Cluster

The HAC cluster is a group of High Availability Computing nodes. High Availability Computing nodes are clients where the High Availability Computing package is installed. The High Availability Computing nodes coordinate the operations of individual Index Server nodes in an Index Server cloud.

Each node on the HAC cluster uses network ports to communicate with other nodes in the HAC cluster. You can change the ports used by the High Availability Computing package service from the HAC cluster properties.
