Adding a relay server to the farm

Once a relay server farm is running, it may be necessary to add additional relay servers to the relay server farm. In order to do this, a new relay server section for the new relay server must be added to the relay server configuration file. The updated configuration file must then be copied to all machines running a relay server belonging to the same relay server farm. The rshost utility must then be run on each machine to apply the contents of the updated configuration file. See rshost utility.

The relay servers do not need to be stopped and restarted. This ensures that service is not interrupted when adding a new relay server to the relay server farm.

To add a relay server to the farm for IIS on Windows

  1. Copy the new configuration file to the ias_relay_server\server directory under the relay server web site home directory. Remember, the configuration file must be called rs.config if auto start is used.

  2. From the ias_relay_server\server directory, run the following to apply the configuration update:

    rshost -u -f rs.config

To add a relay server to the farm for Apache on Linux

  1. Copy the new configuration file to the /<Apache-install>/modules directory under your Apache install directory. Remember, the configuration file must be called rs.config if auto start is used.

  2. From the /<Apache-install>/modules directory, run the following to apply the configuration update:

    rshost -u -f rs.config
