Managing And Patching Neverfail Continuity Engine Clusters Using Cozen Passive Node Management Feature With Cloud Management Suite

Follow

Summary

This article provides information on how to manage or patch Neverfail Continuity Engine clusters through Cloud Management Suite, using Cozen Passive Node Management feature.

Prerequisites

Cloud Management Suite active account

An active logon account is needed for accessing Cloud Management Suite portal management solution.

Note: In the following sections we'll assume that Cloud Management Suite is enabled/configured in your organization.

Enable Cozen Passive Node Management

Neverfail Continuity Engine servers should be able to access Cloud Management Suite in order to be managed remotely from there.

  • On the active server this can be achieved through the Public IP address or through a Management IP Address. 
  • On the passive server, this can be achieved only through a Cozen Management Name and IP Address.

Thus, a Cozen Management Name and IP Address with access to Cloud Management Suite must be configured on each node, in order to be able to connect to Cloud Management Suite when both in active or passive role.

Deploy Cloud Management Suite Agent on Neverfail Continuity Engine Cluster

The Cloud Management Suite Agent should be deployed on the managed-to-be devices, i.e. Engine cluster nodes. Just go to "Tasks" → "Discovery" → "Create" and you will Create a task for discovery Devices.
