How to Allow the Neverfail Management Client to Manage Multiple Heartbeat Versions



This Knowledgebase article details the steps the procedure to manage multiple versions of Neverfail Heartbeat using a single Neverfail Heartbeat Management Client.

More Information

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:

  1. Install the latest version of the Neverfail Heartbeat Management Client on the client system.
  2. Find the Neverfail Heartbeat version of the server to be managed.
  3. On the client system, create a folder <Neverfail Installation Folder>\R2\libs\<version> (where <version> is the Neverfail Heartbeat version from the above step).
  4. Copy the <Neverfail Installation Folder>\R2\jre\lib\ext\Neverfail.jar from the Neverfail Heartbeat server to this folder on the client system.
