Follow


Summary

This Knowledgebase article provides information about how to add and remove server groups to the Neverfail Advanced Client.



More Information

When the Neverfail Advanced Client is opened, it displays the Servers Overview screen. The system must be told which group of servers to administer, since by default the Neverfail Advanced Client is unaware of the presence of any servers. Once a server group has been added, it will be available in the Overview panel.


Procedure

To Add a Neverfail Engine Group

  1. Open the Neverfail Advanced Client and click Add Group in the tool bar, select Add Group from the File menu, or right-click an existing group in the navigation panel and select Add Group from the menu.
  2. Type the name for the new group into the text box, and then click OK . The newly created group appears in the navigation panel on the left of the Neverfail Advanced Client window.

To Remove a Neverfail Engine Group

  1. Select the group to be removed in the navigation panel of Neverfail Advanced Client. Click Remove Group in the tool bar or select Remove Group from the File menu. A confirmation message appears.
  2. Click Yes to remove the group.

To Add a new connection

  1. In the navigation panel, select the Neverfail Engine group to receive the new connection. Click Add Connection in the tool bar, select Add Connection from the File menu, or right-click an existing group in the navigation panel and select Add Connection to invoke the Add Connection dialog.
  2. Type the host name or IP address for the new connection into the text box, select the Port Number (if different from the default value of 52267 ), and select a group from the Add to Group drop-down list (to add the connection to a group other than the one currently selected).

    Note: You may be prompted to login. If so, login using a valid administrator-level username and password for the server for which you are adding a connection, and then click OK .
  3. Click OK to create the new connection. The newly created connection appears in the navigation panel on the left of the Neverfail Advanced Client window, and the Server: Summary page updates to represent any existing network relationships of the added server.
  4. Repeat the process to enter the remaining connections necessary to define the new Neverfail Engine group.

To edit a connection

  1. In the navigation panel, select the connection you want to change and select Edit Connection from the File menu or right-click an existing connection in the navigation panel and select Edit Connection from the menu to display the Edit Connection dialog.

    Note: When a configured connection is not found, an error message may be displayed. Click Edit Connection to reconfigure the connection.
  2. Type the new value for the port number into the Port Number text box, or use the Up or Down arrow controls to select a new value, and then click OK .

To move a connection

  1. Select the group connection in the navigation panel and click Move Connection in the tool bar, select Move Connection from the File menu, or right-click on the connection in the navigation panel and select Move Connection from the menu to display the Move Connection dialog.
  2. Select the destination group to receive the connection from the drop-down list, and then click OK .

To Remove a Connection

  1. Select the connection in the navigation panel and click Remove Connection in the tool bar, select Remove Connection from the File menu, or right-click on the connection in the navigation panel and select Remove Connection from the menu.
