[AG-TECH] multi-system node setup

Hi Derek,

Easy! Really.... we do that all the time. The other systems just run the
service manager (I like to run it in debug so I can see it). The
display/audio system runs the client and you add the other systems in the
node manager and configure the services that way.

What I like to do though: I bring up the client on each machine and test the
services I want to run on the system as if they were a single node. Then I
bring up the service manager and leave it running ­ I usually put it in the
startup so on bootup they¹re good to go. Remember to not let them sleep
(energy manager)....

You can email me directly if you have problems. On windows 7 the only big
issue has been if the multicast beacon is enabled on the client causes the
client to crash.

Questions if you need more details, let me know.

Subject: [AG-TECH] multi-system node setup

I am trying to setup my first multi-system node and I would like to
configure it so that all services are managed from the display/audio system.
Is there any documentation on how to setup a multi-system node on Windows?
I am running 3 windows 7 64bit systems (display/audio, capture,
instructor/VPC) and am not having any luck in getting them all connected as
I understand that they should.  Currently I have to join each system to the
venue and run the individual services on each.
Any guidance given would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
