In XenMobile versions earlier than version 10, you configured Device Manager as a cluster and App Controller as a high availability pair. XenMobile 10 integrated XenMobile 9 Device Manager and App Controller. As of version 10, high availability is no longer applicable to XenMobile. To configure clustering, therefore, you need to configure the following two load balancing virtual IP addresses on NetScaler.
The procedures in this article explain the method of creating a new XenMobile virtual machine (VM) and joining the new VM to an existing VM, thereby creating a cluster setup.
For reference architectural diagrams for XenMobile 10.x in clustered configurations, see Architecture.
Based on the number of nodes you require, you create new XenMobile VMs. You point the new VMs to the same database and provide the same PKI certificate passwords.
After you have entered the password, the initial configuration on second node will complete.
9. In the XenMobile console, click the wrench icon in the upper-right corner of the console.
The Support page opens.
10. Under Advanced, click Cluster Information.
All of the information about the cluster, including cluster member, device connection information, tasks, and so on, appear. The new node is now a member of the cluster.
You can add other nodes by following the same steps. The first cluster added to the node has a Role of OLDEST. Clusters added after that will show a Role of NONE or null.
After you add the required nodes as members of the XenMobile cluster, you need to load balance the nodes to be able to access the clusters. Load balancing is done by running XenMobile Wizard available in NetScaler 10.5.x. You can following the steps in this procedure to load balance XenMobile by running the wizard.
You will see the virtual IP address status on the XenMobile page.
You will also see that the DNS entry in NetScaler points to the MAM load balancing virtual IP address.
