Create a deployment manager

When you set up a cluster, you must create a deployment manager profile. Use the Configuration Wizard to set up the profile.

Configuration Wizard

The Create a Deployment Manager is a sub step in the Set Up a Cluster configuration.

Creating a deployment manager

You can create the new deployment manager profile on the same server as portal or on a remote server.
