Create Clusters in Runtime Manager

To deploy applications to a cluster, add the servers to Runtime Manager first and then create the cluster. You need to add at least one server to create a cluster.

When you add a server to a unicast cluster, all existing servers in the cluster are restarted.

For Object Store persistence on all the servers in your cluster, create your cluster manually and use Quorum Management.


Before you add servers to a cluster, note the following restrictions:

  • Servers cannot contain any previously deployed applications.

  • Servers cannot belong to another cluster or group.

  • Multicast servers can be in the Running or Disconnected state.

  • Unicast servers must be in the Running state.

  • All servers in a cluster must be running the same versions of:

    • Mule runtime engine (including monthly update)

    • Runtime Manager agent

    • Java

      For information about monthly updates, see Monthly Date-Patch Updates.
