Question / Problem

Can I use SpaceObServer in a clustered environment?

Answer / Solution

You can use SpaceObServer in a clustered server environment by installing it on one of the nodes. That means that a node fail over is not handled, but scheduled scans will be started automatically after the node is running again.

You can also install SpaceObServer on each node. If you do so, you have to change the observing server for the scanned roots to each of the nodes, or to none. You can configure the observing server in the edit field "Observing Server" in the "Expert Settings" tab of the "Configure Scans" dialog ("Scan > Configure Scans").

Leave the observing service blank to allow any SpaceObServer service to execute scheduled scans. You can enter multiple servers, separated by semicolon (";"). By default, local drives are stored in the database in their UNC convention (e.g.: "C:\" -> "\\<servername>\C$\"). To ensure that each node is able to scan these drives you have to scan "\\LOCALHOST\C$\" instead.

For each node you install SpaceObServer on you need one licence (See General / Registration).
