Wyn Enterprise: Deploying in a Distributed Windows Environment

This section explains how to set up Wyn Enterprise in a distributed environment for Windows, which you can accomplish by deploying servers, services, and worker modules on separate machines.

Caution: Make sure to deploy the services before the worker modules in a distributed deployment environment.

Note: Please contact GrapeCity Sales for a distributed license key.

Before You Begin

Before you start with the deployment procedure, you must configure the primary and secondary nodes on the respective machines.

  2. Install the secondary node on the machine using the How To Install section at the bottom of the secondary node page.

    i) Download and install ASP.NET Core Runtime (recommended version 6.0.4) on the secondary node machine. Make sure to download the Windows Server Hosting Bundle Setup.

    ii) Click and download the binary.zip file. Unzip the file and copy it to the secondary node machine to a newly created folder Wyn, at this location – C:⧵Program Files⧵Wyn.

    iii) Run the command line as an administrator and execute the shell script using the following command,


    Observe that the status of the secondary node now changes to Online.

    Tip: Turn off the firewall on the machines or ensure the ports listed on this page are open.
