The purpose of the document is to provide a guide to install, configure, and run TIBCO Enterprise Message ServiceTM (EMS) in a fault-tolerant configuration on Microsoft Azure. In addition, the document will provide the steps and expected results for testing EMS F/T on Azure.

The document will outline:

  • Setting up Red Hat Linux virtual images on Azure
  • Setting up Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 virtual images on Azure
  • Setting up the shared file system in Azure
  • Setting up the CIFS/SMB mount on the Red Hat Linux and Windows Server VMs with optional TLS encryption
  • Installing and configuring EMS for F/T on both platforms
  • Tuning EMS for Azure

Running tests on both platforms for:

  • EMS process failure
  • Network failure between the VM running EMS and the shared storage
  • Accidental VM reboot from Azure Dashboard
