We have two unanswered questions from a customer, and wanted to get a proper answer for him that the User guide does not quite detail.
(Questions from the customer)
1) It seems an easy answer but, Our SQL environment is clustered and I'd like to know, will the backup reader have to be installed on the inactive node as well as the active node to use the product? and if so, please explain.2) Normally with other software packages, you install on all WFE's but I was advised the Agent should be installed on only one WFE, what is the reasoning behind that?
For the first question the answer is quite obvious if you take into account that Lite Speed Backup reader provides SQL stored procedures. In order to call them the stored procedures must be available on all cluster nodes. So the backup reader needs installing on both active and inactive nodes.
As for the second question RMSP invokes SharePoint Deployment API. The API is available on any SharePoint WFE.
Best regards, Kirill.
