Hello everyone. Today, we will be discussing how to set up GemFire locators in a cluster and perform related configuration. To set up GemFire locators in a cluster, we need to first set up GemFire.properties file under AEM forms, home directory, libs, caching, and finally, in the bin folder.

Then, we have to open the command prompt in the master node server in EBID mode and move to the bin folder inside lib/caching of AEM foam setup.

After that, we will enter the command to start the locator of the master note as shown on screen. Upon successfully setting up the locator, there will replicate the same folder structure that is libs/caching/bin, and all the files end up in folder under slave node and place the GemFire.properties file under bin as done previously.

Then, we’ll follow the exact same steps to run the GFSH.bat file while running the command for starting the locator, we’ll change the locator’s theme to the slave node service locator. Once we seen the law that there are two non-admin members like shown on the screen, the process would be successful. This should be followed for any number of locators in the cluster.

Please note, that you have to replicate the same folder structure that is libs/caching/bin and all the files on the bin into the slave node, because it will not be present by default in the slave node.

So, this is how we can successfully set up GemFire locators in a cluster and perform related configuration. Thank you. -
