Configuration of Additional Processing Servers

 
ChronoScan Enterprise provides the capability to add additional processing servers to offload processing from the primary server when it is busy performing other tasks.
 
To configure an additional processing server follow the instructions below (we assume a default configuration on the primary server for the application data directories and Jobs):
 
1)     Run the installers for both the client and server components on the new server (ChronoScan Setup and ChronoScan Server);
 
2)     Create a new ChronoScan configuration within the C:\ProgramData directory.
An example is C:\ProgramData\ChronoScan.PROCESSING_2.
From now on, we will be using this configuration;
 
ONLY the Processing service is required for this step. Make sure the service user is set to either the same user on the other machine or a user that have access to the SQL database as well as the directories on the primary server.
Make sure that the service created uses the -customdir flag for the configuration created on step 2);
 
4)     On the new server, open the folder “C:\ProgramData\ChronoScan.CONFIGURATION_NAME” (this should be the same configuration folder from step 2);
 
5)     Create a file named "config.redirect.xml" in the folder from the previous step;
 
6)     Add the following to the file created in the step above where the path defined (\\W2012REMOTEPC\c$\ProgramData\ChronoScan) is the ChronoScan data folder on the primary server:
 
<chrono_custom_launch>
                <program_data_dir>\\W2012REMOTEPC\c$\ProgramData\ChronoScan</program_data_dir>
</chrono_custom_launch>
 
 
6)     Ensure the newly created processing service is running, you can check the task manager for the chrono_proc_server.exe process.
 
The new server is now configured with ChronoScan and ready to provide additional processing power.
