Attachmate e-Vantage ViewMaster Installation

ViewMaster is designed to be installed and run on each client. Since the viewers are not downloaded from a server, they load more quickly, and server failure or downtime will not adversely affect productivity.

Planning your installation involves understanding which components to install on which servers or clients, and how 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.
