To do so, first set up the master, exporting the configuration file from the Summary page (see Summary). Then when you set up the subordinate, you can select the previously exported file on this page.

Setting Descriptions
Hostname Enter a name to identify the controller.
NTP Server Hostname Enter the hostname or IP address of a Network Time Protocol (NTP) server, or keep the default server.
Configuration Mode Select whether the controller will be a master or subordinate.

For subordinate: If you have an existing master AMI Panzura Cloud Controller and want to configure this AMI as its subordinate, open the web interface for the master controller and select Configuration > Basic Settings > System. Click Export and save the file.

Then on this wizard page, click Choose File for the Local Configuration File, and select the master configuration file that you just exported.

For information on the web interface, see the Quicksilver Cloud Storage Controller Administration Guide.

  • None. Does not add the master IP address to the network host.
