How to setup SM 7.11 horizontal scaling ?



Is there any documentation on how to setup SM on a Windows 2008 server on a horizontal scale? I am using Windows Server 2008, I have installed and setup the db and got SM to start on the LB server, now I am going to move to setting up the 2 app servers. How do I connect/setup those so that its a true horizontal scaled env? I am assuming it has mostly to do with configuring the ini or cfg files?


Also in a horizontal env do licenses need to be applied to each server or just the LB? 


I also found that we have 3 physical servers but also have a virtual server, I am new to setting up SM so would I need to use the virual to setup SM in the horizontal scale?

Hello, in the SM online help you will see the details and an example on ho to accomplish this.

Additionally, in a horizontal env you need to copy the license file in all servers.

also, looks like the single license needs to be applies to each app server, a copy of whats on the LB as long as you are using this:


that did the trick for getting me started!
