Post subject: Horizontal Scaling - WebI & Crystal - Not much documenta
|We are looking at building a dedicated server to host processing of Web Intelligence and a dedicated server to host processing for Crystal Reports I'm having some difficulty in determining exactly which BO servers need to be installed on these servers.
I have been able to determine the following:
For the Crystal Reports server:
Crystal Reports Processing Server
For the Web Intelligence server:
Crystal Reports 2016 Processing Server
Crystal Reports 2016 Report Application Server
Crystal Reports Cache Server
Where should I put the following servers?
Web Intelligence Processing Server
We have lots of scheduled reports as well as on-demand processing so I think the Adaptive Job Server location will be critical to that. We could build a dedicated machine for the Adaptive Job Server, but again, wondering what other servers need to be on that machine.
Connection Server 32
Adaptive Job Server
If you can point me to any documentation, that will be great.
