Enable Distributed UMS
The standalone UMS Servers will work just as if they were installed as a High Availability environment if connected to the same external database. Messages between the UMS Servers will be transferred via database entries. For detailed information on the Distributed UMS, see Installing an IGEL UMS Server.
For how to install the Distributed UMS or extend an existing standard UMS installation to the Distributed UMS, see Installing the Distributed IGEL UMS.
If you activated the Distributed UMS feature and have multiple UMS Servers, take care in case you decide to disable the feature. If the Distributed UMS feature is deactivated but more than one UMS Server is using the same database, no synchronization will be done between the UMS Servers.
If you have a UMS High Availability installation, this checkbox will be greyed out and cannot be activated.
Apply and restart local UMS Server
The changes under Enable Distributed UMS will be applied, and the UMS Server service on this machine will be restarted.
End update mode for local UMS Server
Use this feature if you have updated your Distributed UMS or UMS High Availability installation, but the update mode was not automatically stopped when the update procedure was complete.
