Once clustering is set up, the cluster will monitor and control the Genetec™ Server service, so you do not want the Genetec™ Watchdog service trying to start or stop the Genetec™ Server service anymore.
- Use Notepad to open the file GenetecWatchdog.gconfig found in the path N:\Program Files\Genetec Security Center 5.8\ConfigurationFiles.
Edit the file to include the string:
The third line now reads:
<Watchdog serverPort="4534" registrationRetryDelay="00:00:15" responsivenessTimeout="00:02:00" emailFilterLevel="None" preventServiceRestart="true">
On the active server, move the configuration files from their default path to the
new configuration folder on your mirrored data partition: N:\Genetec Security Center
You created this folder when you prepared your servers for clustering.NOTE: In this example “N:” is the drive letter assigned to your mirrored data partition. The folder N:\VertX is only necessary if you are using HID VertX controllers.
- Repeat the steps on your standby server.
- Start the Genetec™ Server service on both servers.
