Copy the DDSServer.exe
server executable to a server where the Disk Group copies are stored.
More than one Distributed Services server (e.g., DDS, DCS, DTS, DDTS) cannot run at the same time on the same server. For example, if Distributed Disk Services detects that Distributed Centera Services is already running on the server, DDS will not start. The one exception to this is when using the -configmode switch when starting a Distributed Service.
Run the DDS server program by double-clicking on
When running under Windows Server 2012 R2, the server must be launched with elevated user permissions by right clicking the shortcut and selecting the Run as administrator option. You may be prompted to input the administrator user name and password.
Right-click on the DDS
server system tray icon and select Open Console.
The Distributed Disk Service console can only be launched from this icon. The Distributed Disk Services icon is only available in the system tray if DDS is running as an application or if it is running as a service under the System account and the Windows Allow service to interact with desktop service setting is selected.
Services Server dialog box is displayed.
- If the DDS server is not automatically enabled, click Enable.
- Distributed Services servers must be configured in the OnBase Configuration module prior to use, including command-line switches and the rotation of the encryption key for new installations. See Configuring Distributed Disk Services.
