I am trying to leverage the AWS Cloud Formation template to create a JasperSoft Reports Server cluster. However none of the instances are coming into service as seen by the load balancer. Has anybody else had this problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
The Clustering CloudFormation templates for Jaspersoft 7.2 changed dramatically from 7.1. They now implement AWS best practices for using UserData to inject initialization scripts and will become modular in the future.
One of the big changes is the Clustering CFTs were changed to assume that an empty Postgres RDS repository database had been set up before the CFT was run, so the CFT expects working database connection parameters to be entered. This is what is meant by "manual setup".
If you don't enter valid database details, you will see the CFT complete successfully, but the system is not up.
Please find attached a Clustering CFT for JasperReports Server BYOL 7.2 that does automatically create a new RDS instance and also allows flexibility for deploying the load balancer, Jaspersoft instances and the RDS instance into a VPC and different subnets.
