Registering Servers

When using the AcuServer load-balancing feature (see ACUSERVER_MASTER_SERVER), if the master server dies unexpectedly, the -register command can be used to re-register the secondary or subordinate servers with a newly started master server. This avoids having to shut down and restart the entire system.

The syntax for the command is:

acuserve -register [server] [-n portnum]

This command tells the secondary acuserve running on server and listening on port portnum to re-register itself with the master server. Note that it registers with the master given in the configuration file when it was started. server defaults to the local host, and portnum defaults to the usual port.
