Creating and modifying site servers

You can create the site servers that you require by selecting the computers that you want to use and specifying the site services that you want to install on each. You can modify existing site servers by adding or removing site services. Notification Server deploys the appropriate installation packages to the selected computers, and removes any that are no longer required. The changes are made when the Symantec Management Agents on the target computers make their next configuration request, so it may not happen immediately.

See Preparing a Windows 2008 R2/7 computer with IIS 7.0 for use as a task server.

See Managing site servers.

To create and modify site servers

  1. In the Symantec Management Console, on the Settings menu, click Notification Server > Site Server Settings.

  2. Do one of the following:

    Create a new site server

    1. In the left pane, click New > Site Server.

    2. In the Select Computers window, select the computers to which you want to add site services.

      The list in the left panel contains all the computers that are available to be used as site servers. When you install the Symantec Management Platform, you need to allow a few minutes for the system to populate this list.

    3. Click OK to confirm your selection.

    Modify a site server

    1. In the Detailed Information table, ensure that the Site Servers view is selected, and then select the appropriate site server.

    2. Click the Edit symbol.

  3. In the Add/Remove Services window, check the appropriate check boxes to select the site services that you want to install on each computer.

    All of the available site services are listed under each computer, allowing you to select any combination of services for each computer. The check boxes for any service types that are not allowed to be installed on a particular computer are grayed out. You can group the list by site servers or by services. Selecting a parent node on the list selects all of its children.

    If any check box is already checked, that indicates the corresponding site service is already installed. If you want to remove it, uncheck the check box.

  4. Click Next.

    The installation and uninstallation actions that you have specified are displayed. If necessary, click Back to return to the previous page and change your selection.

  5. Click OK.
