    Alternatively if you wish to use the PxM Client to log on to the PxM Virtual Appliance please contact Osirium support by clicking here.

  2. Once successfully logged on, open up the Web Management Interface. You will be prompted to upload a valid Osirium licence before you can start using the PxM Platform.

    Click Choose File and select the licence file.

    Once a second node has been created and joined to the cluster the Local role will be updated to Leader and the Node status will be displayed as Clustered.

Adding a follower node

Once the first PxM Virtual Appliance (leader cluster node) has been created, if you wish to create a clustered environment of multiple PxM Virtual Appliances you can begin to deploy and join subsequent PxM Virtual Appliance nodes (followers) to the cluster.

The installation steps for joining follower nodes to a cluster differ to that of the first node in the cluster. To add a node (follower) to the cluster see Deploying and joining a follower node to your cluster.
