we are planning to install Crowd Data centre and I am not clear on step 5: add a new Crowd node to the cluster
When installing the second server (node), do I need to install a fresh (empty) version of Crowd and then overwrite the Install and Home directories as specified by Atlassian ... or do I only need to get a server and copy / mount the relevant directories?
Quid of the reverse proxy configuration ?
Many thanks for your replies.
Thank you for asking this question.
When installing another node, you can use a fresh version of Crowd and then mount shared home directory, which should be visible to all the nodes in your cluster. The location of the shared directory mount point is $CROWD_HOME/shared (where $CROWD_HOME is the location of local crowd home directory as specified in the crowd-init.properties file or in the crowd.home system parameter)
The reason why we mentioned to copy whole installation directory from the previous node to another, was that there are certain configuration options stored in files in the installation directory, such as:
and we recommend that those options should remain the same for each node in a cluster.
Your feedback about Crowd Data Center is greatly appreciated!
Are you still working on Crowd? I know this post is 2 years old but I have a question.
I have followed your instructions and I have 2 nodes running, the only small issue I have is that if I use my main URL crowd.company.com I can't tell which node I'm running on. Is there an crowd cluster gui? Or a config file I need to change in order to see which node is active for the current session. I could not find any info on that. Let me know please. Thanks.
