About this task

Starting with the Istanbul release, you can select a MID Server cluster from the Discovery Schedule form.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to MID Server > Clusters.
  2. Click New.
  3. Name the cluster and select the cluster type: Failover or Load Balance.
  4. Right click in the header bar and select Save from the context menu.
  5. Click Edit in the Includes MID Servers Related List.
  6. Select appropriate MID Servers for this cluster from the slushbucket.
