Standby SwyxServer Configuration of a standbySwyxServer
Configuration of a standbySwyxServer
After the installation of a SwyxServer the Configuration Wizard is started. Here
* the the necessary user rights are assigned and
* it is specified that this SwyxServer is being set up as a standby SwyxServer.
Always install and configure first the standby system and then the master system. This procedure is recommended, because for the configuration of the replication the standby system must already be installed and must run.
The standby SwyxServer later adopts many parameters directly from its master SwyxServer. Consequently, only a few parameters are queried during the installation of a standby SwyxServer.
You have to install and configure both systems using a windows domain account which has administrative rights on both systems.
This is how you configure a standbySwyxServer
1 SwyxServer Database:
Click on "Create..." to create a new local database.
First the SwyxWare user database is created.
In addition, it will be checked whether the Administrator password of the SQL server is set. If this is not the case, the configuration assistant will ask for a password.
You can also use "Restore" here to restore an existing local database, e.g. from an older SwyxWare installation.
2 Type of SwyxServer:
Select the option "Standby SwyxServer" here. You enter the licenses during the configuration of the master server.
3 User account:
Here you set the user account which should be used to start the SwyxWare system services (for example ’ippbx’).
Choose here the domain user account under which the master SwyxServer should also run later.
The user name should be selected by using the “Browse” button. You then only enter the password. The validity of your entries will be checked by the Setup program. This check may take several seconds. If there is an error in the entries an error message will appear and you can repeat the procedure.
4 Service Account Information
The configuration assistant gives an overview of the user account used, and the created group.
5 MasterSwyxServer
Enter the name of the future master server here. This server will also manage the licenses for the standby server, so that none need be entered here.
6 Standby Services:
A list of the Swyx services installed on the current computer appears. As default, all services on a computer work together with the other services on the same computer.
This means that all services on the master server work with the SwyxServer service on the master system, and all services on the standby system with the standby SwyxServer service. If you want to change this setting, click on "Edit...". A window will open: "Standby Service Configuration". Choose whether the selected service should work
* only with the master SwyxServer
* only with the standby SwyxServer or
* with both SwyxServer
7 The standby server accepts from the master server the parameters for the mail server, the location, the FTP access for the update of the telephone firmware and the conference. These parameters are therefore not queried any more here.
8 Close the configuration assistant afterwards with “Finish”.
The standby configuration is then started directly ( Standby parameters for the standbySwyxServer).
