Introduction:

We want to add additional nodes to the already clustered Virtual Appliance for Identity Suite. How can this be done?

Environment:
Identity Suite Virtual Appliance any version
Instructions:

To add a 3rd node:

Deploy and initialize the OVF for the 3nd  vApp node.

Connect to the vApp web ui of node 1 or 2 (it doesn’t matter which).

Get to the deployment Setup screen (the screen where you drag and drop services to nodes).

You should see your 2 node cluster with all the services you already deployed.

Add the 3rd node to the node list (this scales the vApp cluster to 3 nodes).

 

Drag services you want to the 3rd node and deploy the solution.
