For one of the Filr appliances that you are clustering, do the following:
In the Appliance Administration Utility (port 9443), click.
Use the Clustering dialog to enable clustering and connect the Filr appliance to the Filr Search appliances for memcached support.
Figure 4-11 illustrates that the first Filr appliance is configured with both Filr Search appliances in the cluster, and that information is then propagated to all other Filr appliances.

Figure 4-12 Enabling Clustering on Filr-1 (IP address 192.168.1.111)
In the Filrsearch-1_IP_Address_or_Hostname Filrsearch-2_IP_Address_or_Hostname.field, type a space-separated list of each Filr Search appliance in the cluster in the form
Click, then click .
The search appliance information is propagated to each appliance in the list, so you only need to type the list once. After that, the same list automatically appears in the Clustering dialog of the other Filr appliances in the cluster.
Enable high-availability searching and add both Filr Search appliances to each Filr appliance.
Figure 4-13 illustrates that the first Filr appliance is connected to both Filr Search appliances for high availability (HA) searching.

In the left frame, click.
For the Step 5, then click ., select , type the that you set in
Type an arbitrary name for the second search node, specify its DNS host name, then click OK.
In contrast with Step 2, the list of Filr Search appliances is not propagated to each appliance.
Repeat from Step 3 for the other Filr appliances in the cluster.
When all of the Filr appliances in the cluster have completed the reconfiguration process, continue with Completing the Cluster Setup.
