Sharing the Content Repository directory
In an environment that has multiple Application Servers or a distributed Application Server, you must share the Content Repository directory.
The Content Repository directory needs to be accessed in read/write mode by the web console and Primary Scheduler, and in read-only mode by the web application component. In addition, the TrueSight Capacity Optimization user on each computer must have permissions to read, write, and update files in the Content Repository. For users to have the required permissions, the UID of the cpit users must be same across all Application Servers in an environment.
To share the Content Repository directory
To share the Content Repository between two Application Servers AS1 that is running the web application component, and AS2 that is running the Data hub and Primary scheduler, do the following:
- Run the installer first on AS1 and then on AS2.
- Share the Content Repository that has been created by the installer on each Application Server via a shared file system (that is, NFS, by configuring a mount point on all servers, that maps an external storage).
- Copy the Content Repository both directory and subdirectories structure, from either AS1 or the AS2 to the shared Content Repository location. For more information, see System-level administration overview.
- Mount the Content Repository location from both AS1 and AS2.
