I want to deploy Tc with TC_ROOT on an UNC path like attached image. I have 2 question here:
1.When installing a new TC server foundation the TC_ROOT path must not exist therefore what would happen if I want to install a new server foundation with the the UNC path already exicting?
2.Technically what is the idea behind using a UNC path for TC_ROOT? (I know that TC_DATA must be shared but don't know how a shred TC_ROOT can help except security subject.)
Solved! Go to Solution.
In deployment img which is attached I see that TC_ROOT is on a UNC path in resource tier and tc server is installed in enterprise tier, wrong? So as of your good explanation maybe it is unique for pool of servers?!
Thanks Randy for your explanation;
Just something you point that pool manger sources TC_Data to communicate with DB, what about TC_ROOT ? It must contains TC_ROOT to talks with volumes, true?
So for pool manager I must only select the foundation, server manger, FMS server cache in feature window as minimum to be installed on a machine, it is how I understood!
Good afternoon, apparently so coincided, I just recently read about the alternative installation of Rich Client and there it is described that it can be done:
Install the rich client for shared disk deployment
But this does not really have to do with your image. I agree with RandyEllsworth, on your image there is nothing about the UNC path.
Hello Arthur and good afternoon;
you and Randy are right that image won't shoe UNC path. I just guess that it might be a UNC as the other circle which I showed(pool manager) are installed separately(I considered each block as a sparate machine).!!!
Thanks for your help.
I tried to figure out the things and with your help it is very clear now. Just I was looking at TcUA again and I think there is one more thing not solved yet. If you look at image in attach it seems there are 2 communication line between webapp tier and enterprise tier, 1 black and 1 in red, I guess the red ones is 17800 and 17810 ports!!? but I couldn't relate anything to black ones(question marks shown in image). May you please explain this a bit more?
Or maybe 1color is 17800 and the other is 17810 for ex?(I'm just thinking out loud:))
I also read about shared disk deployment before and I guess it must be very helpful in large enterprises as you dont need to install rich client on each machine. Have you tried this deployment? what is the benefits in your perspective?
I think the only requirment is a good network bandwich.
