Can I deploy Access Server in a cluster?

Created: 11 Jul 2011 | 2 comments

I have been using the pcAnywhere access server product for a few years now in an environment with over 600 hosts, but my environmental parameters will be changing. Does anyone know if the Access server product can be deployed in a cluster? Also, if I own 800 licenses for the access server, do I need additional licensing to import these licenses to another server if my total connections do not exceed 800 (as in a failover scenario)? 

Thank you for your help. I apologize if this topic is already covered elsewhere.

Hi Jeffsw,

What OS are you planning to run this with? 

I have not seen anyone try to cluster this on Windows.  I don't know enough about Access Server to comment on where it is good to cluster or not. 

Have you checked with pcAnywhere to see what they say about clustering their software?  Maybe they have some recommendations or instructions for you.

There is no agent availble for Access Server application so far in VCS.

If you have start/stop and monitor scritps available with you for Access Server, you can configure it in VCS using Application agent.
