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 As of version 10, high availability is no longer applicable to XenMobile.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.
- Mobile device management (MDM) load balancing virtual IP address: A MDM load balancing virtual IP address is required to communicate with the XenMobile nodes that are configured in a cluster. This load balancing is done in SSL Bridge mode.
- Mobile app management (MAM) load balancing virtual IP address: MAM load balancing virtual IP addresses are required for NetScaler Gateway to communicate with XenMobile nodes that are configured in a cluster. In XenMobile 10, by default, all traffic from NetScaler Gateway routes to the load balancing virtual IP address on port 8443.
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.
- You have fully configured the required XenMobile node.
- One public IP address for MDM L band and one private IP address for MAM.
- Server certificates.
- One free IP for NetScaler Gateway virtual IP address.
Ideally, the clustering environment that you set up would look like the following figure:
