Adding a connection unit

Assign a grid, a cluster, a replicate set, or a server set to a Connection Manager, create a service level agreement for the connection unit. For a cluster, also configure failover.

Prerequisites: For the Connection Manager, the HCL OpenAdmin Tool (OAT) for Informix® requires Informix 11.70.xC3 and the Connection Manager that is packaged with Informix 11.70.xC3 or with HCL Informix Client Software Development Kit (Client SDK) 3.70.xC3.

A connection unit is a collection of database servers in a grid, a high-availability cluster, a replicate set, or a server set. A Connection Manager provides load balancing and directs client connection requests to the appropriate server in a connection unit based on service level agreements (SLA).

To add a connection unit:

  1. On the OAT menu, click Replication > Connection Manager.
  2. Click the Connection Manager.
  3. On the Actions menu, click Add Connection Unit.
  4. Complete the wizard.
