Configuring Client Communication to Use the Floating CommServe Name

Client communication can be setup to use the floating CommServe name.

Before You Begin

  • If you plan to use the floating CommServe name for the entire CommCell, make sure to enter the Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) of the floating CommServe host in the CommServe Information page during installation.

  • If you plan to use a combination of proxy and a floating CommServe hostname in your environment, make sure to install clients as follows:
    • For clients using the proxy, make sure to enter the Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) of the production CommServe host, in the CommServe Information page during installation.
    • For clients using the floating CommServe hostname, make sure to enter the FQDN of the floating CommServe name as the CommServe host in the CommServe Information page during installation.

    If necessary, you can also redirect some of the existing clients to use the floating CommServe hostname. For more information about changing the CommServe name, see Changing the CommServe Host Name on a Client.

Procedure

  1. Configure the client communication with the CommServe depending on your environment. For more information about setting up client communication, see Setting Up Client Communication With the CommServe.
    • If you plan to use the floating CommServe name for the entire CommCell, setup client communication with the CommServe using the Use existing configuration option in the CommServe LiveSync dialog box.
    • If you plan to use a combination of proxy and a floating CommServe hostname in your environment, setup client communication with the CommServe using either the Using failover Clients or the Proxy Client option in the CommServe LiveSync dialog box.
