Installing a Scalable, Fault-Tolerant FME Server

Before installing FME Server for fault tolerance, make sure you have:

To perform an installation for fault tolerance:

  1. Obtain the Installer
  2. Install the FME Servers on all machines you have allocated for your fault-tolerant architecture.
  3. Configure the FME Server Database on your database server.
  4. Set Up the Load Balancer and Configure with FME Server to route traffic between each FME Server instance you installed.
  5. Start the FME Server system services. Following a fault-tolerant installation, the FME Server system services do not start automatically. You must manually start them.
  6. Log on to the Web User Interface and update the password for the admin user account (recommended).
  7. Request and Install a License.

Optimize: You can scale-up your system by:

  • Increasing the number of FME Engines that run on machines that are part of your FME Server deployment.
  • Adding FME Engines on additional machines.
