ACS Server Install Questions

Answered Question
Jan 20th, 2010

I have a remote site customer that is in the process of replacing their ACS servers,and have several questions:

1) What version should we be installing?


2) Where can we get a clean binary installer (or do we have to start with 3.x or 4.0 & upgrade-if upgrade, can we use latest patch installer, or do we have   to apply successive patches?)


3) Cross-version replication? Current servers have Release 4.1(1) Build 23 Patch 5-do these need to be upgraded to current version, or can we install latest & replicate from current?


4) Is it possible to use different DNS name (ex rtpacs.corpnet2.com) for website than server's 'real' name (ex. us2sawn00232.us1auth.xxxx.com)?


5) How to use GSK-signed cert? Have tried previously & failed-anything special here?

Thanks for any help you can give.

Hi Richard,

For your queries for replication ACS should be of same version then only you can replicate between the ACS patner,If you have the same version then your first and third query got the answer.

For your fourth query you can use DNS server to host your web servers like when ever user acces your web site traffic will land in your DNS server where it will redirect to original server for that DNS server should be authoritive server for your website.

For clear binary installation i would suggest check out the this link http://openacs.org/forums/message-view?message_id=1245671 hope this helps.

If helpful do rate the valauable post.
