Installing a BlackBerry Connectivity Node instance
BlackBerry Connectivity Nodeinstance
You can install one or more instances of the
BlackBerry Connectivity Nodeto add additional capacity for device connectivity, for the purposes of regionalizing device connectivity, or for the purpose of high availability or disaster recovery.
BlackBerry Connectivity Nodeinstance contains the following
- BlackBerry Secure Connect Plus
- BlackBerry Gatekeeping Service
- BlackBerry Secure Gateway
- BlackBerry Proxy
- BlackBerry Cloud Connector
BlackBerry Connectivity Nodeinstance provides another active instance of these components to the
BlackBerry UEMdomain that can process and manage secure device connections (by default, the
BlackBerry Gatekeeping Servicein a
BlackBerry Connectivity Nodeinstance is disabled).
Enterprise connectivity can be maintained by creating server groups for
BlackBerry Secure Connect Plusconnectivity or
BlackBerry Proxyclusters for
A server group contains one or more instances of the
BlackBerry Connectivity Node. When you create a server group, you specify the regional data path that you want the components to use to connect to the
BlackBerry Infrastructure. You can associate email and enterprise connectivity profiles with a server group. Any device that is assigned those profiles uses that server group’s regional connection to the
BlackBerry Infrastructurewhen it uses any of the components of the
BlackBerry Connectivity Node.
Optionally, you can designate each
BlackBerry Connectivity Nodein a server group to handle a single connection type:
BlackBerry Secure Connect Plusonly,
BlackBerry Secure Gatewayonly, or
BlackBerry Proxyonly. This frees up server resources to allow fewer servers required for the same number of users or containers.
BlackBerry Proxycluster contains one or more instances of the
BlackBerry Connectivity Node. When you create a
BlackBerry Proxycluster, you specify the
BlackBerry Proxyservers included in the cluster, as well as whether that cluster will be used for
BlackBerry Dynamicsactivation, or only for application server connectivity.
After you install a
BlackBerry Connectivity Node, you must register it before it can be used.
