Data-Center Synchronization - Configuration

This section details the steps necessary to perform a Workbench Data-Center Synchronization:

  1. Via Workbench\Configuration\Applications - identify the WB IO application associated with your Master Configuration Server
    1. For simplification regards this as the Workbench IO Master - i.e. "APAC : WB_IO_Primary"
      1. This Workbench IO Master will be the initiator of ALL future Data-Center synchronizations

  2. Expand the 9. Workbench Distributed Mode section of the WB IO Application Object

  3. If this is the 1st WB DC Sync, the 1.Remote WB Primary ZooKeeper value will be #REMOTE_ZK_Address Host:Port#
    1. If this is the Nth Data-Center sync, the value will be the IP:Port of the last Data-Center sync

  4. Enter in the remote Workbench ZooKeeper IP Address:Port number
    1. i.e. 10.31.198.8:2181 for the remote EMEA Workbench Data-Center

  5. Click Save

  6. A Workbench Data-Center Sync In Progress notification popup will be displayed:

    Warning
    Please wait a minimum of 5 minutes for the Workbench Data-Center synchronization to complete; do not perform any Workbench Configuration Changes during this time

  7. Check the new/additional remote Workbench Data-Center Host(s) are present in Workbench\Configuration\Hosts
    1. In the example below, CC-APP-DEC-DEMO-3 is the remote EMEA Data-Center host

  8. Check the number of Data-Centers and their names are present in Workbench\Configuration\Overview
    1. In the example below, we have 2 x Data-Centers - APAC (the initiator) and the remote EMEA Data-Center

  9. Repeat the above steps for any other Workbench Data-Center deployments that you wish to form in a Workbench distrbuted architecture

Workbench Data-Center - Post Formation

Warning
  1. The folders ‘<WB_HOME_FOLDER>\Karaf\resources\windows\wbagent_9.1.000.00_installscripts’ directory (Windows) and ‘<WB_HOME_FOLDER>/Karaf/resources/linux/wbagent_9.1.000.00_installscripts’ directory (Linux) WILL NEED to be *DELETED* first as new folders will be created with the updated details
  2. When forming a Workbench Cluster, for example adding a Workbench Node 2 or Node 3, or Node N, on completion of forming the Workbench Cluster, the Workbench IO (i.e. WB_IO_Primary) Application now needs to be restarted to regenerate the correct Workbench Agent Remote JSON configuration file”

Workbench Data-Center - Renaming

Warning
  1. The folders ‘<WB_HOME_FOLDER>\Karaf\resources\windows\wbagent_9.1.000.00_installscripts’ directory (Windows) and ‘<WB_HOME_FOLDER>/Karaf/resources/linux/wbagent_9.1.000.00_installscripts’ directory (Linux) WILL NEED to be deleted first as new folders will be created with the updated details
  2. If/when a Workbench Data-Center is renamed, the Workbench IO (i.e. WB_IO_Primary) Application needs to be restarted to regenerate the correct Workbench Agent Remote JSON configuration file”

Workbench Data-Center - Renaming - Workbench Agent Remote

Warning
  1. Post the renaming of a Workbench Data-Center, if an existing host requires a Workbench Agent Remote re-installation, the newly generated binaries in the folders ‘<WB_HOME_FOLDER>\Karaf\resources\windows\wbagent_9.1.000.00_installscripts’ directory (Windows) and ‘<WB_HOME_FOLDER>/Karaf/resources/linux/wbagent_9.1.000.00_installscripts’ directory (Linux), will first need to be copied to the host before running the “installer.exe” (Windows) or “installer” (Linux) executable”
