Add a satellite server

Before you add a satellite server configuration item (CI) to the XL Deploy repository, ensure that you have enabled communication with satellites. For more information, see Configure XL Deploy to communicate with satellites.

To add a satellite server to XL Deploy:

  1. In the left pane, click Infrastructure.
  2. Click Menu button and click New > xl > Satellite.
  3. In the Address field, enter the IP address of the satellite.
  4. In the Port field, enter the port number.

    Important: The IP address and port number must match the values configured in the conf/satellite.conf file on the satellite server.

After you saved the satellite CI, ping the satellite to check if it can be reached. For more information, see Ping a satellite from XL Deploy.

Note: If the Encrypted checkbox is selected, XL Deploy will use a secure connection to communicate with the satellite. For more information, see Configure secure communication with a satellite.
