Question / Problem

Can I use SpaceObServer in a Cluster 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 both nodes and in case of a fail over you simply have to change the observing server for all scanned roots. You can do this by selecting "Set Observing Server" in the context menu of the "Configure Scans" dialog ("Scan > Configure Scans > Expert Settings"). Leave the observing service blank to allow any service to perform the scheduled scans. Then you should deactivate the scan services ("Tools > Options > Service") on all but one of the nodes in the cluster and activate it again on a node fail over.
