SAP BI 4.1 SP6 Cluster Install
Existing system already installed on SERVER-1
SERVER-1 has -
All the the components (Tomcat, CMS etc.) are installed on this server locally. The I/P and O/P file repository is shared mount.
The cluster name is sapbiBO1. The cms.default is set to @sapbiBO1 in BIlaunchpad.properties and CmsApp.properties.
In the CCM - right click on SIA Node - Properties - Configuration tab. I can see the cluster name as sapbiBO1.
Now I have a server SERVER-2. I have to add another node to the existing Cluster sapbiBO1 on SERVER-1.
I am assuming that during install, I just have to uncheck "Integrated Database" check box so that it can ask for existing CMS DB
connection details. I have to choose the "Expand the existing SAP BusinessObjects......." option.
It will ask me the cluster key of the system installed on host SERVER-1, login credentials of CMS DB, which is on SERVER-1.
Once the above steps are done, it will install and it will automatically pick up the cluster name and add it to existign Cluster on SERVER-1.
Once the installation is done, I will adjust I/O and O/P File repository as per the SERVER-1.
- I need to adjust the cms.default to @sapbiBO1 in BIlaunchpad.properties and CmsApp.properties on SERVER-2. Correct?
- We have Cisco Hardware load balancer. I will give the URL of SERVER-1 and SERVER-2 and it will do the load balancing for logins.
No need to do anything for load balancing on SERVER-1 and SERVER-2?
- Is it going to have one CCM, which will be on SERVER-1?
- Do I have change anything to PlatformServices.properties manually? If yes then is it on SERVER-1?
Please confirm if I have anything missing here.
Thank you for advice.
