Introduction

This document describes how to configure two Distributor Admin Workstations (AWs) with the same Admin Site Name.

Architecture

Any site that contains AWs is an admin site. The CallRouter provides real-time data to a Distributor AW at each admin site. If an admin site has two Distributor AWs, which share the same admin site name, you must configure one as the primary Distributor AW, and the other as the secondary Distributor AW. If the primary Distributor AW is not available due to network or power issues, the secondary Distributor AW establishes a new connection to the preferred Call Router.

Configure the Admin Site Name

In order to run two Distributor AWs with the primary and secondary architecture, you can configure both Distributor AWs with the same Admin Site Name.

Primary Distributor AW

Complete these steps:

  1. Run the AW Setup.

  2. Enter the required name in the Admin site name field in the Real-time Distributor Properties window (see Figure 2).

  3. Ensure that the Second distributor for site check box is not checked.

Secondary Distributor AW

Complete these steps:

  1. Run the AW Setup.

  2. Enter the required name in the Admin site name field in the Real-time Distributor Properties window (see Figure 3).

    Ensure that the name you enter here matches the Admin site name on the primary Distributor AW.

  3. Check the Second distributor for site check box.
