Redundant Server Pool

122 Views, 2 Replies

I have 3 NT 4.0 servers in my redundant pool. I called AutoDesk and register
the server pool. Then I go to the servers and enter the Auth Key code and it
says invalid key for 2 of my servers. In the book it say 'Add the AdLM key
code provided by AutoDesk to the Redundant Server Pool Compatible Servers
list', what in the heck is the Redundant Server Pool Compatible Servers
list?

Thanks,
Steven Malloch

Is the prefix of the server code the same for all of the servers. If it is
not, then the servers are not compatible with each other to participate in
a server pool. The prefix for atleast 3 AdLM servers must be the same to
create a server pool.

It seems like such a headache. Why do you need a server pool for the AdLM?
How many clients are you supporting? One problem that I can see by
reading the documentation, is if you have 3 AdLM servers and two of them go
down then no one can access AutoCAD. Also, if you are tight on servers and
one of them really blows up and you have to replace hardware on it, then
the prefix of the server code might change making that server unable to
particpate in the server pool. Now you would have to find another
"compatible" server to run the AdLM (essentially a computer that can
produce the same prefix for the server code).

Good reply, Kevin.
There are other factors that may cause pool binding problems as Steven
describes. Take a look at
http://www.autodesk.com/support/techdocs/td15/td154037.htm which describes
redundant server setup.
