Configuring Services and Service Groups

Oct 19, 2016

When you configure a service or service group, you either modify an existing service or service group, or add new services to the AppExpert application. You add services or service groups if you did not specify them when you imported the application template. You also add services and service groups when you increase the number of servers that host instances of the application. You can configure a service and service group for an application unit only after you configure the service or service group for the AppExpert application.

To configure a service or service group for the AppExpert application

  1. Navigate to AppExpert > Applications.
  2. In the details pane, right-click the application for which you want to configure services or service groups, and then click Configure Backend Services.
  3. In the Configure Backend Services dialog box, do one of the following:
    • To configure services, click the Services tab.
    • To configure service groups, click the Service Groups tab.
  4. On the Service or Service Groups tab, do one of the following:
    • If the services or service groups that you want are listed on the tab, click the corresponding check boxes.
    • If you want to specify all the services or service groups, click Activate All.
    • If you want to create a new service or service group, click Add. Then, in the Create Service dialog box or Create Service Group dialog box, configure settings for the service or service group, respectively, and then click Create.
    • If you want to modify a service, click the service, and then click Open. Then, in the Configure Service dialog box or Create Service Group dialog box, configure settings for the service or service group, respectively, and then click OK.

For information about the settings in the Create Service, Configure Service, and Create Service Group dialog boxes, see "Load Balancing."
