The full Sisense installation includes both the "Elasticube Server" and "Sisense Web Application" which may by installed seperately on different servers. In this article we will lay out the steps necessary to establish this setup
The separation of the Elasticube and Sisense Web servers divides the load of usage into the respective areas:
- Elasticube Server - Elasticubes management, building and querying
- Sisense Web Server - Dashboard design, administration and visualization
Thus, this setup should be considered when there is significant load on one or both of these areas
The following settings should be done in coordination with your IT department
- Install Sisense Web Server and Elasticube Server packages on separate servers
- Open Ports: 811, 812 and 8081 (or your designated port) in the Inbound and Outbound rules at the Windows (and any other) firewall on both machines.
*If you are using a cloud service for a server, make sure to open those ports in the service's settings as well.
**Be sure to restrict access in accordance to your security- e.g. to specific IP addresses
- Open ICMP communication between the servers to allow Ping requests and replies to pass through (part of the validation mechanism).
- Open Sisense Web and Add an Elasticube Server
You should be able view and create dashboard from Elasticubes running on the separate server
To analyse the communication, please make sure that you are able to:
- Ping one server from the other
- Test ports:811, 812 and 8081 (or your designated port) with Telnet command
