Managing Backup Servers

Enabling or Disabling Backup Servers

To enable or disable a backup server from a site highlight the server name from the Backup Servers node in the navigation tree and tick or untick the tick box next to the server name.

Changing Backup Servers Priority

Each backup server in the list is given a priority. By default, the local 2X Publishing agent is given the Master priority which cannot be changed. To change the priority of other backup servers in the farm, highlight the server name and use the Move Up and Move Down buttons to assign the correct priority.

Promoting a Backup Server to Master Server

In case the primary server cannot be recovered you can promote a 2X Backup Server to a Master Server by following the below procedure:

  1. Open the Parallels 2X Remote Application Server Console on the server which you would like to promote. (all required files are automatically installed when a server is added as a backup server)
  2. Open the Farm category and navigate to the Backup Servers node, highlight the server name and from the Tasks drop down menu click Promote Backup to Master as seen in the below screenshot.
