How-to: Installing Exact Globe Next on multiple servers

Introduction

You can split the server into multiple servers when installing Exact Globe Next (EGN). The server can be split to run various functions, for example, a web server for Exact Synergy Enterprise, SQL server for databases, reporting server for dashboards, and server to run Exact Event manager.

Description

In the customer environment, there should only be one central storage and server setup. Both the central storage and server setup should not be available on multiple servers. Otherwise, you will encounter problems with the installation. However, if you have a live environment and separate test environment with separate servers, you can have another central storage in the test environment, and another server setup. To install Exact Globe Next (EGN) in multiple servers, do the following:

Installation on server 1 

  1. Select all the components that you want to install, and select the Multiple server installation check box in the Preferences – User functions screen. All the selected components will be downloaded. 
  2. In the Preferences – Multiple sever installation screen, select the Exact Globe Next components that you want to install in this server. 

Installation on server 2

All the components are already downloaded in server 1, so only the installation is required in this server. However, before the installation, make sure the central storage folder in server 1 is shared. The installation steps are as follows:

  1. Log in to server 2.
  2. Using server 2, browse the central storage folder of server 1.
  3. Open the folder Setup.
  4. Start the file Setup.exe.
  5. Follow the steps in the Exact Globe Next Server Setup wizard (see Exact Globe Next Server Setup wizard), and select the components that you want to install on server 2.

Updating server 1

To update server 1, see Updating Exact Globe Next.

Updating server 2

Before you update server 2, make sure server 1 has been updated. Furthermore, ensure the central storage folder in server 1 is shared.

  1. Log in to server 2.
  2. Using server 2, browse the central storage folder of server 1.
  3. Open folder Setup.
  4. Start the file Setup.exe.
  5. Follow the steps in the Exact Globe Next Server Setup wizard (see Exact Globe Next Server Setup wizard), and select the components that you want to install in server 2.
