I wanted to share a few lessons and thoughts for deploying BE.N on a cluster (farm). Please visit my blog for the write-up. I’ve deployed BE.N on single nodes for many clients. This is the first post from my actual deployment on multiple
nodes. Few things I learned: drain stop each node, deploy the code to each node, if using xml files - redeploy app_data/pages and files to each node, restart site and app pool to clear cache.
Few items I found that need further refinement – so if you have any experience or ideas – please send them over:
- How to systematically reset the cache on each node of the farm after updating content in App_Data folder. Without resetting the app pool. Need to reset cache for pages and post.
- Tools/techniques you use to push code to all nodes.
- Any other things to be aware of when deploying to a cluster?
Thanks. My blog post is at:
