DA server searching vaults from different EV sites

Created: 29 Nov 2012 • Updated: 30 Nov 2012 | 5 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Environment - EV 9 (SP2) - yes, they are planning to upgrade. . .

2 EV servers  Each in a different EV site (but physically colocated.)

DA installed on EVserver1 (EV site 1)

Right now to run searches against each EV site, we must run 2 searches, 1 in each DA /EV site/Vault

Can we configure either DA or the DA client to run 1 search against both sites?

Yes, DA can search multiple EV Sites.  So DA in EVSite 1 can search EVSite 2 as well.

We are using EV / DA 9 SP2, but I know where in the configuration settings this is.  We will try that. Will report back on results either way.

 

Thanks!

No problem, the article referenced applies to EV\DA 9.0.2.

 

Cheers,

This worked like a charm.

Word of note, we were not able to add information to an existing 'customer' database.  As this was a new instal of DA for this customer, we were able to create a new 'combined' customer database with multiple Directory entries in it.

You should have been able to add the extra sites by right clicking on the left hand pane in EVBAAdmin webpage and selecting properties and in the pop-up window, press enter in the Directory DNS Aliases field , add the extra site and click OK at the bottom. I just confirmed it works on my existing customers.
