Installing a dynamic domain manager or its backup

Start the installation of a dynamic domain manager or its backup.

About this task

Install a dynamic domain manager if you want to schedule and control your static and dynamic workload both in distributed and end-to-end environments. For example, you might have different branch offices and want to run your dynamic schedule independently at each branch office to improve agent scalability. Moreover, installing a dynamic domain manager or its backup you run your dynamic schedule even if the master domain manager or the master domain manager configured as backup is unavailable.

By installing a dynamic domain manager you can:
  • Improve fault-tolerant and dynamic agent scalability because the workload of the agents in the domain is directly controlled by the dynamic domain manager to which they are directly connected.
  • Allow static and dynamic processing to continue even if the agent connection to its master domain manager is unavailable.
If you want to ensure that your workload runs even if the connection to the dynamic domain manager is unavailable, install a dynamic domain manager configured as backup.
A dynamic domain manager that is configured as backup is composed of a:
  • Fault-tolerant agent
  • Broker server
  • Dynamic agent
When you install a dynamic domain manager, the following workstation types are created in the database:
For the broker server
For the dynamic agent
For the fault-tolerant agent
For the domain. The domain is a child of the master domain manager domain.
These workstations belong to the newly created domain of the dynamic domain manager, and you cannot move them under another domain. Moreover, you cannot change the parent domain of the domain of the dynamic domain manager.
