Managing application instances
You can manage your application instances from the System Topology page of the Flex Appliance Console. To access your existing instances, click on the box on the home page and navigate to the Application instances section.
Under Application instances, you can perform the following tasks:
Create a new instance.
Select an existing instance to:
Relocate it to another node.
Stop or start it.
When you start an instance, Flex Appliance automatically determines which node to start it on for optimal load balancing. Therefore, it may not start on the same node that it was located on when it was stopped. If you want the instance to run on a specific node, you can relocate it after it starts.
Resize the storage.
You can also perform the following tasks outside of the Flex Appliance Console:
View live performance metrics of all of the instances on your appliance from the Flex Appliance Shell. See Viewing instance performance metrics.
Run NetBackup commands on a NetBackup master or media server instance from an SSH session.
Flex Appliance does not support local directories on application instances. If you create a local directory on an instance and the instance is relocated or stopped for any reason, the directory is not preserved when the instance restarts.
