DxConfiguration Manager Overview

DxConfiguration Manager is DH2i’s client software that is used to configure first time installs on Windows servers running DxEnterprise or DxOdyssey. After the configuration is completed, administrators can use DxEnterprise’s management UI, DxAdmin, or DxOdyssey’s management UI, DxOdyssey Client, for cluster or gateway group management.

Server Status

Shows current state of the server with the option to stop or start DxEnterprise or DxOdyssey as needed.

Activate License

Automatic over the internet

Select this if the server has internet access and can activate the license with DH2i activation servers. Enter the license code and check the Accept End User License Agreement (EULA) box.

Manual activation

Select this option if the server does not have internet access. The license request is generated for the given license code and must be activated through DH2i Clients portal or from a workstation with internet access. The DH2i activation website is at https://clients.dh2i.com. Copy and paste the result from Clients Activation portal in the License box, check the EULA box and select Activate.

Set Passkey

A pass key is required to log in to the cluster or gateway group for administration. The pass key is case-sensitive and can be any combination of alpha-numeric characters, punctuation, or symbols. If the user has not configured a pass key or has forgotten the pass key, the user will be unable to log in remotely or log in using unprivileged accounts.

Join Membership

The Join Membership option allows administrative re-assignment of the local server to another existing DxEnterprise cluster or DxOdyssey gateway group.

NatMatchAgent Checkbox

If the NatMatchAgent checkbox is selected, the default value of the target member is match.DH2i.com. This allows server to join the quorum from remote locations using the DH2i matchmaking service.

Target Member

Enter the hostname or IP address of a server from an existing DxEnterprise cluster or DxOdyssey gateway group.

Pass Key

Enter the passkey or OTPK previously set for the existing cluster or gateway group.

OK

Click to process the request.

Close

Click to cancel and exit without saving change(s).

Manage OTPK

Set a One-Time PassKey (OTPK) for the cluster or gateway group that can be used by other servers to join using DH2i matchmaking service.

Select New and a window will appear that allows setting a time and date for expiration of the OTPK. The default is one hour.

The OTPK is now set for use to join membership via DH2i matchmaking service.
