    Installation setup questions

    New Member

      Greetings,

       

      Some general questions;

       

      Our current plan is for a 2 server configuration, 1 production, 1 dev.

       

      1 - Would a single domain make the best sense? If so would I need to install on the master gateway and create the domain in the production environment first? I had planned to do dev first.

       

      2 - Will there be any challenges having the repository and integration services on the same machines(prod and dev). The machines meet the requirements for that.

       

      3 - What are the minimum services that have to be installed beyond repository and integration services.

       

      4 - We will be migrating 8.6 objects to this instance(9.6) via a temporary 9.1 instance. Can the 9.1 instance use the same domain or do we need a temporary 9,1. We will be migrating repositories from 8.6 not migrating the 8.6 domain.

       

      Thanks

          Kevin,

           

          My suggestion would be for you is to have separate Domains for both Prod and Dev environments even though it is bit of extra work in setting up Domains initially, but it will avoid SPOF (single point of failure) situation in case there are any issues with the server in future. Also it is easier to rollout fixes and patches by testing them in lower environments prior to deploying them into production.

           

          For your other questions, yes you can have Repository and Integration Services on the same machine where the Domain is running as long as there are no resource constraints on the server having the services running in parallel. Initially you can start with repository and integration services to start with and then later add other services based on the requirement and your current licensing structure.

           

          I am not clear on your 4th question. Please explain clearly.

           

          Thanks,
