Introduced in Feature Pack 2

WebSphere Commerce search server: Advanced configuration

The WebSphere Commerce search server can be deployed in the Advanced configuration. Depending on your Feature Pack version, the search server is either deployed on a remote machine, or federated and clustered with WebSphere Commerce using the deployment manager (DMGR).
Note: The WebSphere Commerce authoring environment cannot be deployed in the advanced configuration. Only the embedded configuration is supported. For more information, see WebSphere Commerce search server: Embedded configuration.
