Remote Container servers can be installed and configured in the following ways:
Running Multiple Servers on the Same Host: Run one or more servers on the same host and off the same daemon as an Operations Center server. This enables an administrator to off-load one or more running adapters and integrations on one or more Remote Container servers, each running in a separate Java Virtual Machine, without having a second installation of Operations Center on the same host machine.
Using a Dedicated Remote Container Server Host: This installation method uses a Operations Center installation that is dedicated only to running only Remote Container servers and does not run a Operations Center server. Multiple Remote Container servers can run on a remote host machine separate from the Operations Center server host machine.
The system requirements for a Remote Container server are the same as for a Operations Center server. For more information, see the Operations Center 5.6 Getting Started Guide.
Remote Container is always installed when the Operations Center is installed. However, it can be installed separately by using the custom installation option in the Operations Center installer.
To install the Remote Container and create Remote Container instances:
If using a dedicated host from the Operations Center server, install the Remote Container server using the custom installation option in the Operations Center installer.
For more information, see the Operations Center 5.6 Server Installation Guide.
Installation automatically includes the two Remote Container instances that are predefined as ContainerRCServer1 and ContainerRCServer2.
To define a new Remote Container instance, issue the following command:
For example, use the mkcontainer SystemE command to create a Remote Container server named SystemE.
Continue to Section 6.3.1, Setting Configuration Options for Remote Containers to enable the new Remote Container server instances.
