Add Local/Remote Clients
A client is your web or application server. This can be either local or remote client. To configure a web or application server as a cache client, you can use either NCache Web Manager or PowerShell cmdlets.
You might get prompted with a dialog box upon these changes, asking whether to reload or overwrite the cache config file. For more detail on maintaining data integrity, refer to this chapter.
- For .NET, make sure NCache Service (NCacheSvc) is started. If it is not started, type the following command in PowerShell (run as admin):
Start-Service -Name NCacheSvc
- For .NET Core, run NCache Service (NCacheSvc) as Administrator. Please refer to this section for detail.
Using NCache Web Manager
Launch NCache Web Manager by browsing to http://localhost:8251 (Windows) or
<server-ip>:8251(Windows + Linux).
In the left navigation bar, click on Clustered Caches or Local Caches, based on the cache to which the client will be added. Against the cache name, click on View Details.
This opens up the detailed configuration page for the cache. The Client Nodes tab displays a list and status of any existing client nodes of the cache.
Click on the button and specify the client node IP. Click on + to add it to the cache. A success notification will be displayed.
- The newly added node is displayed in the Client Nodes list, with client cache status.
Add-ClientNode cmdlet enables the user to add one or more client nodes to existing clustered cache(s).
This command adds a Client node 126.96.36.199 to demoClusteredCache already existing on server node 188.8.131.52.
Add-ClientNode -CacheName demoClusteredCache -Server 184.108.40.206 -ClientNode 220.127.116.11
