Server Usage Report - fails in multi node config

Asteroid

Hello,

 

Our server usage report fails often now that we added 2 worker nodes in addition to the controller node.  The app seems to require that it run only via the controller machine.  Is that correct? If so, I assume i need to use the worker assignment setup to ensure it runs on the controller machine?

 

Thanks!

Hi @npsmith 

 

The server usage workflow queries the underlying embedded database (MongoDB) which by defaults resides on the controller machine. I assume the workflow fails because it's configured to talk to the database on port 27018 on localhost which is the default setting. When executed on one of the workers, it attempts to access the database on that machine and it's not there. You will be able to fix this by using the hostname or IP address of the controller instead of localhost.

Oh wow- thanks so much for that.  I completely overlooked that  :)

 

Once I referenced the machine name instead of localhost, it worked.

 

Thanks!!!
