You can install an additional App Volumes Manager component on multiple servers and point them to a shared SQL database.

Multiple App Volumes Managers can be load balanced by a hardware load balancer. Alternatively, you can configure the App Volumes agent to communicate with multiple App Volumes Manager servers.

To install additional App Volumes Manager instances, follow standard installation procedures and point a new instance to the existing SQL database. See Install App Volumes Manager.
Note: Ensure that the Create a new database or overwrite the existing database check box in the installation wizard is deselected.

While configuring an App Volumes agent, you can specify the load balanced FQDN of the App Volumes Manager.

Configure the App Volumes agent to communicate with multiple managers by modifying the following registry key:


Add string values named ManagerN (where N is number from 0 to 9) and value data of App Volumes Manager FQDN.
