Issue/Introduction

 

We're running a Policy Server configurator and once we ran option
"Initialize instance" on 1 Policy Server, we'd like to know if we have
to run it again the next Policy Server which will use the same Policy
Store instance ? Should we initialize the Policy Store on each Policy
Server setup if they are planned to use the same Policy Store instance ?

 

Environment

 

Policy Server all versions

 

Resolution

 

At first glance, you have to run it on the first Policy Server. Once
on this Policy Server you have seen that the Policy Server start
correctly with the initialized Policy Store, then the only thing to do
on the next Policy Server is to configure the Policy Server to connect
to the Policy Store giving correct credentials. This can be done
manually in the smconsole. No initialization is needed on the next
Policy Servers.
