It is possible to have multiple web servers point to one web publishing engine, which is then pointed at one filemaker server instance. However, it is not possible to have multiple web publishing engines pointed at one filemaker server instance.
Couldn't see the Master for the Workers :-) I'll set up the configuration that way instead.
fooey! it no work :-( Just tried it and the same thing happens - as soon as a pick another IP as the Web Server, it removes the previous IP. I selected the Three Machines as well as the Two Machines (Alternative) and set the Web publishing engine to be either on a separate unit or with the Master and the Web Server was on a different site.
Web Publishing Engine
When I try to select a different Web Server other than 126.96.36.199 and deploy the configuration, then 188.8.131.52 becomes "disabled" and won't process any FM commands. Judging by the fact that the GUI shows only a straight line relationship, I'm thinking that multiple Web Servers can't be attached :-(
I usually do this by modifying the Jakarta files on the web servers myself, but doing such is a complicated process.
I'd suggest trying to install on one web server, then take that web server off the network when you change the configuration to use a different one. That should prevent the deployment utility from disabling the first web server (I think).
You are a wonder! Thank you - that worked :-)
