Enabling a Cluster

If you have disabled a cluster, you must enable it before the cluster can do any work. When you enable a cluster, it enables all nodes in the cluster. This action makes the cluster available for collections.

Click Enable Cluster.

Managing Nodes

You might want to change the credentials your node is using or change the location of a node’s temporary files. Occasionally, nodes may need to be disabled or stopped to perform regular system maintenance, or as part of troubleshooting your Enterprise Reporter deployment. You can move a node from one cluster to another or remove it completely if needed.

Modifying Node Credentials

You can modify the node credentials using the Configuration Manager. The node account must be a member of the group Reporter_Discovery_Nodes.To ensure that your change goes smoothly, the new credentials should be permissioned as outlined in Node Credential and Alternate Credential Details for On-Premises Discoveries .

If you modify credentials that are used by a discovery node, the node service must be restarted before the changes take effect. Enterprise Reporter will attempt to restart the node. However, if the restart fails, you may need to manually start the service on the computer that hosts the node. If there are jobs currently running on the node, they will be cancelled. To prevent this, either change the credentials during a down time, or cancel the discoveries yourself and restart them once the change takes effect.

Occasionally a credential change fails.For example, credentials can fail when the node host computer is not available on the network or has a firewall configured, or because you have provided invalid credentials. In this case, the node indicates that it failed to start in the bottom pane of the Manage Discovery Clusters view.

Nodes can potentially lock an Active Directory password, so remember to change the password on the node whenever you update the password on the node’s account. If you are performing a password update on credentials, see Changing Passwords Using the Credential Manager for more information.

You can manually restart the service using the Services console on the remote computer. For more information, see Troubleshooting credential change failures .

Select Manage Discovery Clusters, and click the cluster containing the node.
In the bottom pane, select the Discovery Nodes tab.
Click Database Credential.
Click Close.

Modifying the Location of Node Temporary Files

Temporary data collection files are created while discoveries are running. These files are stored in the user's temp folder and can be large. If storage space is limited, these files can be stored in an alternate location by adding a DiscoveryTempFolder key to the appSettings portion of the ReporterNode.Exe.config file. This alternate location is optional and if it is absent or inaccessible, the default location is used.
