How do I change which Application Server my Frontend server points to?


If you wish to change the Application Server being used by your SilkCentral Frontend Server you should firstly stop the Frontend Server service and navigate to the following location:

"C:\Program Data\SilkCentral"
"C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\SilkCentral"

Then open the file called "appserver.ini", this file should contain 2 lines:

1. Should contain the machine name or IP address of the application server.
2. Should contain the PORT number required to access the application server.

Simply edit the hostname and port for the new Application Server, save the file and then start the Frontend Server service.

Now when you access the Frontend Server URL it will be pointing to the new Application Server.
