Assigning Specific Action Servers to Run Policies

Updated: November 19, 2010

Applies To: Opalis 6.3

Opalis Integration Server enables you to assign specific Action Servers to run specific Policies. For example, if a Policy requires a specialized resource in order to run, you can install the required software on some of your Action Server computers, and then designate those computers to run the Policy that needs that resource. When the Policy runs, it will only deploy and fail over to Action Servers that you have assigned to it.

If you do not assign specific Action Servers to run a Policy, the Policy will use the default Primary and Standby order. See Action Server Failover for more information.

Assign a Policy to a single Action Server if you do not want it to fail over to another Action Server.

To assign a Policy to specific Action Servers

  1. In the Connections pane, select the Policy that you want to assign to a specific Action Server. The Policy appears in the workspace.

  2. Right-click the Policy tab. Select Properties. The Policy Properties dialog appears.

  3. Click the Action Servers tab. Select the Override default Action Server roles check box.

  4. Click the Add button. The Select an Action Server dialog appears.

  5. Select the Action Server that you want to assign to the Policy and click OK. The Policy Properties dialog appears, displaying the Action Server in the list. The Role column displays Primary. This Action Server becomes the primary Action Server for this Policy.

  6. Repeat the previous steps for each additional Action Server that you want to assign to the Policy as standby servers. The first additional Action Server that you add becomes the first standby server. The second additional Action Server that you add becomes the second standby server, and so on.

  7. To change the order in which standby Action Server machines are deployed, click Up or Down to raise or lower the server in the standby rank.

  8. To remove an Action Server from the list, click Remove. That Action Server is no longer assigned to run this Policy.

  9. Click Finish.
