What are advantages of installing IOP in distributed environment. I refered IOP installation guide and as per instructions, on 1 machine have IOP installation with Foundation service installed while on another machine install Foundation with HSS & other components configured. This is fine but again we need to copy IOP installation directory from IOP machine to EPM machine,in such case what is the advantage of having IOP on different machine.
Also when we update any settings in properties file like site.properties we need to copy this file to IOP installer on EPM machine which is very difficult to maintain from integrity perspective. In other way we end up having IOP installation on EPM machine.
Please let me know what are the advantages of installing IOP in distributed environment & what are the cases in which we should ask customer to go ahead with Distributed installation.
But as mentioned earlier evenif you have multiple IOP instances spread across the machines, as per instructions you have to copy IOP installer on EPM machine doesn't it mean that EPM & IOP are on same machine. How it becomes distibuted in that way?
The install bits needed for some software to run is an artifact of how the system is designed. And that has nothing to do with runtime behaviour and what processes are running on which machines. There wont be any IOP process on the EPM machine if thats what you are worried about.
1. Multiple users can be defined in the single HSS and can be shared by multiple iop instances hosted on same/different machines.
2. All the IOP instances can run independently on their individual JVM
3. The centralized EPM server can host services like HSS, OBIEE, Essbase etc.
