This Knowledgebase article details the steps the procedure to manage multiple versions of Neverfail Heartbeat using a single Neverfail Heartbeat Management Client.
The Client Support Kit for the Neverfail Heartbeat Management Client allows the user to manage multiple versions of Neverfail Heartbeat from a single Management Client but it is version-specific and it supports only the versions listed below:
- 5.1.1 (Build 5.1.1314)
- 5.2.2 (Build 5.2.1624)
- 5.3.0 (Build 5.3.1813)
When any of the Client Support Kits are installed, the file "neverfail.jar" will exist in the following folder in the install location: <Neverfail Installation Folder>\R2\libs\<version> (where "version" is one of the supported versions above)
Follow the procedure below to allow the Neverfail Heartbeat Management Client to manage other Neverfail Heartbeat versions as listed above:
- Install the latest version of the Neverfail Heartbeat Management Client on the client system.
- Find the Neverfail Heartbeat version of the server to be managed.
- On the client system, create a folder <Neverfail Installation Folder>\R2\libs\<version> (where <version> is the Neverfail Heartbeat version from the above step).
- Copy the <Neverfail Installation Folder>\R2\jre\lib\ext\Neverfail.jar from the Neverfail Heartbeat server to this folder on the client system.
