You can add Frontend and Backend Servers to a Static Cluster at any time.
To add a Server to a Static Cluster:
- Properly configure the Server (see above): configure it to access the Shared Directory, create Shared Domains, and set the Clustering Settings.
- Add the IP address of the new Server to the Backend or Frontend Addresses tables of other Cluster Members (if you have specified proper network address ranges for those tables, this step is not needed).
- If the new Server is a Backend one, add its name and IP Address to the Static Clustering tables on other Servers.
After a new Frontend Server is configured and added to the Static Cluster, reconfigure the Load Balancer or the round-robin DNS server to direct incoming requests to the new Server, too.
After a new Backend Server is configured and added to the Static Cluster, you can start creating Accounts in its Shared Domains.
