Setting up a cluster | HCL Digital Experience

Use the Configuration Wizard to set up either a dynamic or static horizontal cluster.

Before you begin

Roadmaps provide an overview of the steps that are required for common environment configurations. Select the roadmap that is most like the environment that you want to set up.

About this task

The Configuration Wizard supports adding additional nodes to a horizontal cluster. If you are setting up a vertical cluster, multiple node on a single physical server, manual instructions are available for adding an additional vertical node to either a dynamic or static cluster configuration.


  1. Select the roadmap that is most like the configuration that you need to configure.
  2. Access the Configuration Wizard. Go to http://your_server:10200/hcl/wizard.
    Note: If working with HCL Digital Experience 8.5 or 9 software level prior to CF18, the wizard address will be: http://your_server:10200/ibm/wizard. After installing CF18, the configuration wizard will automatically be adjusted to http://your_server:10200/hcl/wizard.
