20.0 Installing the Lucene Index Server on a Separate Server

You can install the Lucene Index Server on a different server from where Micro Focus Vibe is running. If the Lucene Index Server is already running on the same server as Vibe, you can move the Lucene Index Server to a different server.

Running the Lucene Index Server on a separate server allows both the Lucene Index Server and the Vibe server to have access to more server memory, disk space, and CPU resources.

Complete the following sections whether you are installing the Lucene Index Server on a separate server, or moving the Lucene Index Server to a separate server.

IMPORTANT:The Vibe server and the Lucene Index Server must not have a firewall between them. The RMI protocol used for the Lucene Index Server port works only within a trusted local area network (LAN).

NOTE:This section assumes that you already have a Basic installation of Vibe up and running successfully. We highly recommend that you follow the instructions in Section III, Single-server (Basic) Installation before attempting a more complex Vibe configuration.
