Cluster deployment

Agents can be deployed to a cluster, a cluster may contain a single server or multiple servers.

Please note that you need to set up your servers or/and clusters before you will be able to deploy your agents. Check Servers & Clusters for more information about servers and clusters, how to set them up and differences between them.

Agents can be deployed to a cluster via the ACC Web Portal or the Sequentum Enterprise (Desktop). This article also covers how to view and manage cluster deployments.

A cluster has one or more servers, so once the cluster is changed by deploying agent to another cluster, it gets deployed to all the servers added in that cluster and hence, it will remove agent deployment from all the servers attached to the previous cluster.

Remove From Cluster

To remove the deployed agent from a cluster, select "Remove From Cluster" from the context menu of the deployments. A cluster can have one or more servers, so once an agent is deployed to a cluster, it gets deployed to all the servers added in that cluster and hence when you use the Remove From Cluster option, it will remove the deployed agent from all the servers attached to a cluster.

Note: Removing the agent from a cluster does not remove the Job schedules or Job History or Run History if the agent was already run on a cluster from which the agent is removed. Also, this option is displayed only when the agent is already deployed to a cluster.
