7.3. Creating Managed Servers

Managed servers are the functional servers in a domain; they perform the actual client interactions. The managed servers are children of the domain controller; the configuration and content for the managed servers is located in the domain controller configuration and is assigned by server group.

NOTE

Because of the way that domain components can be arranged on physical systems (Section 4.2, “Separating Configuration and Real-Time Operations: Domains”), the managed server may not show up in the same configuration entry as the domain controller which is its parent. The new managed server is listed as a child of the host controller it is created on. The new managed server will show up in the platform (agent) inventory of that host controller.

NOTE

The creation process must be performed on the host controller after the job is submitted, and then the local agent must discover the new instances. Depending on where in the schedule the job runs and is completed, it can take several minutes for the new managed server to show up in the agent's discovery queue.
  1. Click the Inventory tab in the top menu.
  2. Select Servers - Top Level Imports in the Resources menu table on the left.
  3. Right-click the domain controller entry.
  4. In the Create New menu, select the item for Managed Server.
  5. Enter the name for the new server.
  6. Enter the settings for the server:
    • The EAP 6 domain host to create the server on.
    • The server group to add the server to.
    • The socket binding group to use. This gives the base port numbers for the server instance to use.
    • The port offset. This is the number to add to the socket bindings settings to determine the actual port numbers for the server instance. If the socket binding port is 1000, and the offset is 150, then the port number used for that interface on the managed server is 1150.
    • Whether the server starts automatically when the EAP 6 host starts.
    • Any system properties for the server.
  7. Click Finish.
