- You can only increase the number of servers while editing an environment.
- You will only be able to edit an environment if you have registered a Deployment User in NCache Cloud Portal. To know how to register this user, refer to Register Deployment User.
To modify your created environment, you have two options: if you deployed your machines through NCache Cloud Portal, you can simply edit your environment through NCache Cloud Portal explained in Edit Environment Through NCache Cloud Portal, but if your server/client deployment was manual, then you need to manually edit your environment through your cloud vendor, explained in Edit Environment Manually.
Edit Environment Through NCache Cloud Portal
To modify the created environment using NCache Cloud Portal, follow these steps:
From the NCache Cloud's Subscription Dashboard, click on the Deployment Environments button. On the screen in front of you, you will find a list of all created environments.
Select the environment you want to modify and click on See Details against it.
Under the License Details section, click on the Edit Environment button. This will take you to a form similar to the Create New Environment Form.
Many of the shown fields will be read-only and cannot be modified. What you can modify are the number of Servers.
Update the Server field as per your requirement and click on Review + Edit.
On the Review + Create page, verify your modifications and click on Update to save the changes.
These machines will be deployed with the same configuration that was chosen at the time of environment creation.
Manually Edit Environment
In case of manual deployment of servers, you need to go to your cloud portal and manually add servers and clients. The process is the same as that of deploying machines anew. Follow the steps mentioned in the Deploy Servers Manually section to manually add cloud machines to your environment.
An environment created for manual deployment will be read-only to you. To have access to this created environment, you have an option of Environment Sync, explained in the Sync Environment section.
You can see these changes reflected in the Overview section of your environment.
