Deployment Steps

Deployment of Ekran System in High Availability mode consists of the following steps:

Step 1. Deploying the failover cluster using the Microsoft Failover Clustering feature.

Step 2. Optional, addding shared storage to the failover cluster.

Step 3. Installing the Application Server on the failover cluster nodes and connecting to an existing SQL server.

Step 4. Configuring all instances of the Application Server.

Step 5. Creating a role for the Application Server in the Failover Cluster Manager.

Step 6. Meeting the installation prerequisites and installing the Management Tool.

Step 7. Activating serial keys (and adding the activated serial keys).

Step 8. Installing the Clients.

After completing all of the steps above, Ekran System is deployed in High Availability mode.

In case of failure of the Ekran System Application Server, the Failover Cluster Manager automatically restores the system by using a backup of the Application Server instance.
