Adding Child Nodes to the Parent Node

Note: This topic applies to the Inverness Release.

On the parent node, you must list all the child nodes that the parent replicates to.

The System > Central management > Child nodes page in the parent's administration user interface lists those child nodes already configured:

Name — A unique name to identify the node.
IP/hostname — The IP address or hostname of the child node.
Central logging — Whether central logging is enabled for this node. Central logging determines if logs and reports for that particular node are stored on, and accessed from, the child node itself (red cross), or stored and accessed from the parent node instead (green tick).
Monitor status — Whether the parent can monitor the system status of the child node from the System > Central management > Overview page.
Information sharing — Whether information from the child node, such as Guardian quotas, are shared to the parent.
Replication profile — The replication profile, if any, used to deploy the same settings as the parent to the child node.
Enabled — Whether this child node is active.

You can add nodes by either:

You can also manage the child node settings from this page:
