Relay server setup and licensing 8 Years, 1 Month ago Karma: 0
Since a lot of the relay server related info is years old, I wanted to confirm some points about relay servers.


1. Can a minimum arrangement of one relay server and one dependent application server work correctly, without throwing a lot of errors? I got the impression that at least 2 dependent application servers seem necessary.

2. How would licensing normally be arranged in a relay server setup? In the above minimal case of just one relay and one dependent application server, would there be a master license on the relay server, which would operate as a license server? If so, does the dependent application server need a separate license to be purchased, edited, and installed? Can the reverse be true, where the master license is on the dependent application server which runs a license server?

3. The administrators guide specifically says the relay server can not be used as an application server. I assume this means no relay server applications should be published?

The rules and requirements for a relay server configuration have not changed drastically.

1. The minimum is 3 servers; One relay server and two dependent (application) servers.

2. The easiest is to have the relay server function as the central license server. Turn off licensing on the dependent servers and have them point to the relay server. Touch base with the support team if you need more info on how to do that.

3. Since the Relay server and dependent server sync information, you need to install applications on all three servers. The benefit is that during an update, you only have to update the Relay server and relevant information will be propagated across all servers. The downside is that you need to install the same application on all 3 servers. In other words, the Cluster Manager information needs to look identical across all 3 servers.

Regarding #3, I assume this is a case of the same filepath being used for all servers being the limitation? Based on the way the guide is written, I had gotten the impression that inputting the correct filepath for the dependent application server would be sufficient provided the filepaths were all the same across all dependent servers, so apps would not need to be installed on the relay server itself.

If using standard authentication, are there any other sticking points? I would naturally assume TCP 491 would need to be opened both ways between a DMZ relay server and any internal dependent application server. But will any other ports generally need to be opened from the DMZ relay server to the internal network for things such as GO-Global license server daemon access, or general microsoft related ports for things like AD access for kerberos, or netBIOS?
