Configure a Compute Server

A default EASA installation includes a Local Compute Server and if on a Windows installation with Excel, a Local Excel Server. Thus it is possible to complete the EASA authoring tutorials before configuring compute servers for your environment.

As explained at EASA System Components, an important component of the EASA system is a Compute Server, accessible via communications with the EASA Server. A Compute Server must be configured and tested to link with the EASA Server.

Overall, the primary job of a Compute Server is to run a software application. This involves:

  • Establishing communication between the EASA Server and the Compute Server
  • Defining the software applications that will be run on the Compute Server.

The steps below will accomplish this:

  1. Determine the communication EASA ServerCompute Server communication protocol,
  2. Use the Compute Server Configuration Tool to configure a Compute Server in the EASA system.

Note: A firewall service running on the Compute Server or anywhere between the Compute Server and EASA Server may prevent connection to the necessary ports.

The steps below describe how to configure a Compute Server in the EASA system. Several examples of adding and configuring Compute Servers are provided at the Examples of Adding Compute and Excel Servers page.
