Installing the Master Insight Server

To use a cluster, you must designate one Insight Server in the cluster to act as the master Insight Server.
A client component such as Insight or Report connects to the master Insight Server at the beginning of a session. At subsequent points during the session, the client might connect to other Insight Servers in the cluster to perform a query. These subsequent connections between the client and the other Insight Servers in the cluster are brokered by the master Insight Server and are transparent to the client.
Besides brokering connections between a client and other Insight Servers in the cluster, the master Insight Server acts as the central administrative point for the entire cluster. When you administer a cluster, you update the master Insight Server. The administrative changes that you make on the master Insight Server are retrieved by the other Insight Servers in the cluster.
To install the master Insight Server
  1. Determine which machine will act as the master Insight Server.
  2. Install and configure Insight Server (typically, an Insight Server FSU) on this machine as described in Insight Server .
  3. Install Insight and configure a connection to the master Insight Server as described in the * Insight User Guide*.
