Attachmate e-Vantage Host Access Server Installation

Planning your installation involves understanding which components to install on which servers or clients, and the way to handle such issues as load balancing. Review the terms of your license agreement before installing any components — you might have to purchase additional licenses to install certain components on separate computers.

To provide server scalability, fail-over protection, and load balancing for the management components, you can install MCS on multiple servers across your network, creating a server cluster.
