Configure the Primary Master Node in an Atlas Cluster
The primary master node is the master node in the Bomgar cluster that is configured as the primary site in failover. Information on configuring the Bomgar Appliance for failover is available in the Failover Configuration document. The network in which the master lives should be a central location in relation to your network as a whole.
Note: It is a best practice to set up two master nodes in a failover relationship. However, it is possible though not recommended to have only one master node.
Perform the following steps on the primary master node:
- Go to /login > Management > Cluster.
- Look at the Cluster :: Master Node Configuration section.
- Enter the following information in the Primary master node section:
- Name: Enter a name that you will use to remember this node in the cluster. This name must be unique among all nodes in the cluster.
- Public Address:
- Enter the node hostname that you set up in DNS for this node. (See Prerequisites to Set Up Multiple Appliances in Atlas Clusters.)
- Enter the port over which clients will communicate with the node.
- Internal Address: This can be the same as the public address. Advanced configurations can optionally set this to a different hostname for inter-appliance communication. (See Optional Considerations when Setting Up Multiple Appliances in Atlas Clusters.)
- Click Create New Cluster.
