This article talks about Remote CLA2 in cluster environment set up and configurations with SSL 

Basic remote CLA2 with SI cluster high level diagram:

   1. Install Command Line Adapter 2 in two remote servers by extracting respective CLA2RemotePackage.jar file from SBI node1 and node2

   2. Make the required setup for Command Line Adapter 2, and note down the CLA2_PORT for both nodes.

        Also below properties from CmdLine2server.properties for both servers CLA2-1 and CLA2-2 need to be set according to the requirement.

     a) CLA2NetworkHosts=All
     b) keystoreLocation=cla2_KeyStore.jks
     c) SSLRequired=Yes

   3. Start CLA2 server using start_remote_CLA2_console.cmd/start_remote_CLA2_console.sh

   4. For example in this blog captured the environment details as below:

        SBI-1 and SBI-2 are clusters.

         Node1 SBI-1  IP address - > http://X.XX.X.243:13000/dashboard ( CLA2 Client on Node1 ) 

         CLA2-1 IP Address -> X.XX.X.124  ( Remote CLA2-1 Server )

         SBI 2 IP Address ->  http://X.XX.X.242:13000/dashboard ( CLA2 Client on Node2 )

         CLA2-2  IP Address ->  X.XX.X.33  ( Remote CLA2-1 Server )

   5. Extracted content of CLA2RemotePackage.jar into remote CLA2 Server 1

    6. Create a Command Line Adapter2 on Node1 to connect to remote CLA2 server 1 using the CLA2 port, by selecting required certificate and with Use SSL option as ‘Yes’

   7. Create BP1 that uses CLA2 adapter 1 to connect to Remote CLA2 server 1 and  execute the BP1 on Node1

  8.  Extracted content of CLA2RemotePackage.jar into remote CLA2 Server 2

            image

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

   9.  Create a Command Line Adapter2 on Node2 to connect to remote CLA2 server 2 using the CLA2 port, by selecting required certificate and with Use SSL option as ‘Yes’

10. Create BP2 that uses CLA2 adapter 2 to connect to Remote CLA2 server 2 and  execute the BP2 on Node2

   11. Test results: Both CLA2-1 from SI-2 and CLA-2 from SI-1 are working when BP is executed from Node1 and node2 respectively
