A View administrator creates a site for the insurance company's Central and Eastern datacenters and adds pods to those sites.

  1. The View administrator runs the lmvutil command with the --createSite option to create each site. A View administrator can run these commands on any View Connection Server instance in the pod federation. In this example, the View administrator runs the commands on east1.example.

    This command creates a site for the Eastern region datacenter:

    lmvutil --authAs adminEast --authDomain example --authPassword "*" --createSite --siteName "Eastern Region"

    This command creates a site for the Central region datacenter:

    lmvutil --authAs adminEast --authDomain example --authPassword "*" --createSite --siteName "Central Region"
  2. The View administrator runs the lmvutil command with the --listPods option to determine the default names of the pods in the pod federation. A View administrator can run this command on any View Connection Server instance in the pod federation. In this example, the View administrator runs the command on east1.example.

    lmvutil --authAs adminEast --authDomain example --authPassword "*" --listPods
  3. The View administrator runs the lmvutil command with the --updatePod option for each pod to change its default name. A View administrator can run this command on any View Connection Server instance in the pod federation. In this example, the View administrator runs the commands on east1.example.

    This command changes the name of the Eastern region pod to East Pod 1:

    lmvutil --authAs adminEast --authDomain example --authPassword "*" --updatePod --podName "Cluster-east1" --newPodName "East Pod 1"

    This command changes the name of the first Central region pod to Central Pod 1:

    lmvutil --authAs adminEast --authDomain example --authPassword "*" --updatePod --podName "Cluster-central1" --newPodName "Central Pod 1"

    This command changes the name of the second Central region pod to Central Pod 2:

    lmvutil --authAs adminEast --authDomain example --authPassword "*" --updatePod --podName "Cluster-central6" --newPodName "Central Pod 2"
  4. The View administrator runs the lmvutil command with the --assignPodToSite option for each pod to assign it to the newly created sites. A View administrator can run this command on any View Connection Server instance in the pod federation. In this example, the View administrator runs the commands on east1.example.

    This command adds the East Pod 1 pod to the Eastern Region site:

    lmvutil --authAs adminEast --authDomain example --authPassword "*" --assignPodToSite --podName "East Pod 1" --siteName "Eastern Region"

    This command adds the Central Pod 1 pod to the Central Region site:

    lmvutil --authAs adminEast --authDomain example --authPassword "*" --assignPodToSite --podName "Central Pod 1" --siteName "Central Region"

    This command adds the Central Pod 2 pod to the Central Region site:

    lmvutil --authAs adminEast --authDomain example --authPassword "*" --assignPodToSite --podName "Central Pod 2" --siteName "Central Region"

The pod federation site topology now reflects the geographic distribution of pods in the insurance company's network.
