Converting a node to high availability

I see how to setup the 2nd node for high availability, are there any instructions on how to convert the first node to be configured for high availability. I am assuming that it involves configuring the three shared storage elements (artifacts, tasklogs, and nugetRepository.) Do I just need to change the location of those three, or is there also a step to manually copy the files at the current location? Is there anything else I need to do?

Thanks

Hi Leslie,

Thanks for getting in touch! When you add the second node, the first node will then know that it is part of a HA cluster. You will have to reconfigure its paths for HA as you have correctly identified. It is the same commands as when setting up the second node. Here is a link to our documentation that covers the process in more detail. http://docs.octopus.com/display/OD/Configuring+Octopus+for+High+Availability

Please feel free to get in touch if you run into any issues or have more questions on this! We are always happy to help.

Regards,
Daniel

Let me ask it slightly differently, when I change the paths will the files be copied automatically to the new locations or will I need to copy them manually?

Thank You

Also, which logins need what rights to the 3 shared directories? Only the 2 octopus servers or …? Do the servers need read rights and the tentacles read? Or do the tentacles not read directly from those directories?

Thanks

Hi Leslie,

For your first question, this is not an automatic process, you will need to move the files to wherever you have defined the paths.

As for your second question, only the Octopus server user requires access to the folders. Tentacle will not need to access them at all.

Hope that helps!
