Preparing for AppServer administration
You must complete the following preliminary tasks before you can begin the configuration and operation of an AppServer installation:
*Install the necessary product components. Typically, this involves installing OpenEdge and the AppServer on one or more network machines. If you plan to configure fault-tolerant servers or use load balancing, you must install the NameServer Load Balancer.
*Configure and set up the machines involved in the OpenEdge installation. Typically, you have completed any required network configuration for all machines before installing OpenEdge. After installation, you must also set up each machine environment to run OpenEdge and the AppServer.
*If you plan to use secure (SSL-enabled) AppServers, obtain and install a server private key and a public key certificate on each host machine. See SSL-enabled AppServer operation for more information.
