- The tool needed to configure your NRs is called SYNC. This program is installed in the NonStop subvol you defined for a particular instance of Web ViewPoint. Functions of the SYNC program are:
- Create Neighborhood
- Join a Neighborhood
- Leave a Neighborhood
- You can create a new Neighborhood on any Resident that you want in that Neighborhood.
- When you join a Neighborhood when prompted for “Enter the System Name of an existing Resident”, make sure you input an existing Resident, not the Node Name you are on. Example:
- On PROD1 node, I create Neighborhood “WEST”; when this is done PROD1 is automatically a Resident in Neighborhood “WEST”.
- If I want the LA Node to join Neighborhood “WEST”, then I would logon to LA, run the SYNC program and input PROD1 when prompted for an existing System Name.
- File used for storing the NR configuration is:
NonStop – IPLIST
- If you ever change the IP address of a Resident (i.e. NonStop Node) you will need to use the SYNC program to “Leave Neighborhood” and then use the “Join a Neighborhood” to establish the new IP address in the NR configuration files. The same goes for changes to the Port number in the Web ViewPoint installation UGATCONF file.
Consider the following example:
- Neighborhood TEST1 has NSPROD and YOSPRD defined as Residents.
- NSPROD WVP Instance is running from NSPROD.$DATA1.WVPTEST1 with unique process names. (Note: IPLIST in subvol WVPTEST1 has the Neighborhood details.)
- YOSPRD WVP Instance is running from YOSPRD.$DATA4.WVPTEST1 with unique process names
2. Neighborhood QATST on NSPROD has only NSPROD defined as a Resident.
- NSPROD WVP Instance is running from NSPROD.$DATA2.WVPQATST with unique process names
