Deploying a New Tenant from Multi-Tenant Console

Feb 24, 2013

A tenant is an instance of XenMobile Device Manager that is running on a server. To deploy a new tenant from Multi-Tenant Console, do the following:

  • Check that the XenMobile release you want to use is already in the console by checking the XenMobile Application part.
  • Check that a connection exists to the physical server to which you want to deploy the tenant. To do so, check the Tenant Hosts part. See To add a new tenant host for more information.
  • Check that a tomcat server is installed on the physical server. See Installing Multi-Tenant Console for more information.
  • Check that the Tomcat server definition is done in Multi-Tenant Console by checking the Tomcat Servers part of the console.
  • Define a new secured connector for the tenant. The connector will be deployed on the Tomcat server as part as the tenant deployment. It will handle all requests for the tenant and hold its Public Key Infrastructure (PKI). You complete this step in the Connectors part of the console. See To add a connector to Multi-Tenant Console for more information.
  • Check that the database definition used by the tenant is already complete. You complete this step on the Database Servers part of the server. See Declaring a Database Server in Multi-Tenant Console for more information.
  • Declare the new tenant and link it, during definition, to the previously declared tenant host, Tomcat server, connector, XenMobile application release, and Database server. You also have to include a license file during the definition and optionally import an existing PKI if it already existed. You complete this step in the Tenants part of the console. See To add a new tenant host for more information.
