Setting Up Clusters


If you are using more than one CTS-Manager or TMS in your network, you must configure these applications in a cluster for the Prime Collaboration application to manage; that is, Prime Collaboration cannot manage two standalone CTS-Manager or TMS.

Prime Collaboration monitors only the application servers. It does not monitor the database instances. Health polling is performed for all the CTS-Manager or Cisco TMS application servers in the clusters.

For CTS-Manager or TMS clusters, the session details are imported from the primary CTS-Manager or Cisco TMS as defined in the Manage Clusters page.

Before discovering CTS-Manager or TMS cluster, you must enter the cluster details in the Manage Cluster (Device Work Center > Manage CTS-MAN/TMS Cluster) page. During the discovery of CTS-Manager or TMS, Prime Collaboration uses the cluster details, along with the device credentials (Device Work Center > Manager Credentials) and discovers the management applications.

To manage CTS-Manager and TMS clusters:


Step 1 Choose Operate > Device Work Center.

Step 2 From the Device Work Center page, click Manage CTS-MAN/TMS Cluster.

Step 3 In the Manage Clusters window, enter the Cluster Name and choose an item from the Cluster Type drop-down list.

Step 4 Enter the IP addresses of the primary, secondary, hot standby, and the load-balancer servers. (The Primary Server IP address is mandatory; rest are optional.)

Step 5 A new cluster is added when you click Add.


Perform logical discovery to discover these clusters. For information on logical discovery, see Device Discovery Methods.When you are discovering clusters for the first time in your network, you can enter primary, secondary, hot standby and load-balancer server details. Later, to update inventory or rediscover, you can provide only the primary server details.
