Registering Run-time Servers

Before you can associate tasks with run-time servers and configure tasks for failover and load balancing, you must create an association between each run-time server and a session pool. This process is called registering a run-time server.

To register a run-time server
  1. In the MCS left pane, point to Products and then click Services Builder for Screens.

  2. Under Services Builder for Screens, expand the Deployments tree, expand the Tasks tree, and then click Registered Runtimes.

  3. From the Registered Runtime Servers page, click Add.

  4. In the Add Runtime Server page under Runtime Server Name, type a name for your server/pool association. This name appears in a list of registered run-time servers when you later configure your task.

    The name can be anything that's meaningful to you. It may be different from the name you gave the server when you added it in MCS, and probably should be different if that server has more than one session pool.

  5. Type the host name or IP address, and the RMI port address of the computer on which the Runtime Service is installed.

    The default RMI port is 6700. To use a different RMI port, you must change the RMI port on the Runtime Service server and then enter the new RMI port address here. For information about changing the RMI port for a run-time server, see Run-time Server Properties.

  6. (Optional) If the name of the session pool you want to use does not match the name of the associated project, type a pool name to use.

    The URL, which describes the location of the runtime server, is created automatically as you add values for the other options, protocol://hostname:port/?contextName=pool. If you edit the URL directly, your changes also affect the corresponding options.

  7. Click OK.

    The next step is to associate tasks with agent clusters.

Note If you disable a registered run-time server, it becomes unavailable to all tasks that are associated with it. Although it will no longer be used in a task failover list and will be skipped when a runtime server is requested, it has not been stopped and can still be added to another task failover list.
To edit registered run-time server information
  1. From the Registered Runtime Servers page, select the server you want to edit and click the Edit button.

    The Edit Runtime Server dialog box appears.

  2. Make changes as required, and click OK.

  3. In the Registered Runtime Servers page, click Apply All Changes.

    You can make multiple changes to different registered run-time servers without saving the changes individually. Choosing Apply All Changes sends all changes made to any registered run-time server to the Registered Runtime Server database and the modifications will take effect. Apply all changes will also cause any changes made to the Task Configuration pages that have not already been applied to take effect.
