Test and familiarize after installing in a clustered environment

You have successfully installed and configured Alfresco Content Services in a distributed/clustered environment. Now you can make sure that the features and customizations you have added are operational.

Here are some of the tips to help you test your customizations.
Note: We recommend that you create a test site for testing purpose and put all your test data in that site.
  • Check that the application server is running.
  • Can you login using your user name and password. See Signing in.
  • Check that various components are communicating with each other.
  • For a clustered installation, check if one node is down, check if the request is forwarded to the next available node.
  • Check if clustering is working properly by running the cluster validation tool in the Admin Console.
  • Check if you are using a clustering-enabled license.
  • Change the cluster-related properties in the alfresco-global.properties file, and check if all the nodes are up and running.
Note: After you have finished testing, remember to delete the test site or test data in order to clear your database. Alternatively, if you have made any configuration changes, it is recommended that you Uninstall Alfresco Content Services and then Reinstall Alfresco Content Services to get a clean database.
