Sitecore- How to configure Multiple CD and CM Server.


Let's say my Site name is abc.com, I wanted two CD and one CM with Sitecore setup.

Every instance, will have multiple sub sites like

1.     Abc.multisite1
2.     Abc.multisite2
3.     Abc.multisite3

 Create multiple site entries in the IIS

Abc.multisite1 - create two buildings, one for the public server/name - that will be used for the load balancer, Local host entries – different name with same port :80
Abc.multisite2 - create two buildings, one for the public server/name - that will be used for the load balancer, Local host entries – different name with same port :80
Abc.multisite3 - create two buildings, one for the public server/name - that will be used for the load balancer, Local host entries – different name with same port :80

Configure a new instance for the CM server, Same settings but different public URL for the CM

Important:-

Host entries for local and pubic site in Sitecore.config file in the include section.

Entries in host files

What about if your changes not reflecting on the CD server, Please make below changes only on CM Server, define all locally/publically accessible individual sites – per IP address, this will refers to them

Instance name should be unique and event queue needs to be updated based on below settings.

<setting name="InstanceName">
  :
attribute name="value">CM Server 1:attribute> .PublishingInstance"> :attribute name="value">:attribute>
CD server should have below settings

<setting name="InstanceName">
  :
attribute name="value">:attribute> .PublishingInstance"> :attribute name="value">CM Server Name:attribute>
