KBI 310930 New Feature: Simplifying Management Of Daughter Engines With Direct Access


Argent Advanced Technology 3.1A-1404-T1 and later


Monday, 5 May 2014


A Daughter Engine is generally implemented at a remote office

It is common these days that the Daughter Engine can actually be accessed through Service Manager, Registry Editor and Network Share

This does not mean the Mother/Daughter architecture is obsolete — the Mother/Daughter architecture is still more efficient when dealing the slow or unreliable link between central and remote offices

By specifying that the Daughter Engine can be directly accessed, it can make Argent AT Service Management much easier

Take machine ‘W2008R264XEN‘ in following screen shots as example

By default, it is treated as a remote server

The Service Status, Service Logs browsing cannot be done in Global System View — this is why it is labeled as ‘***Remote***

A Daughter Engine is set as directly accessible in the Daughter Engine configuration on Supervising Engine screen

After the Daughter Engine is set as directly accessible, the Daughter Engine can be managed just like Argent Main Engines or Argent Motors
