7.11.4 Separate Document Manager services to other machines
If resources are available, we recommend separating Document Manager
services, especially the services which consume a lot of CPU and memory
resources, such as Print/Plot and Rendition services, to other machines.
In this section, we explain how to install and configure a Document Manager
Rendition service in a separate machine. The installation procedure for a service
is the same as the normal Document Manager server installation. Here, we only
point to the specific steps to install and configure the service. To separate other
services in another machine, use the process described here, which is similar.
Installing Rendition service in a separate machine
To install the Rendition service in a separate machine, use the following steps:
1. Use the same Document Manager installation program to install the rendition
service in a separate server.
2. When you get to the window where you select the components to install,
select for each component, the This feature will not be available option, by
clicking each component, except Cache Manager, Service Manager, and
Rendition Manager, which are under the Additional Managers component.
All these components must be selected using the option This feature will be
installed on local hard drive while clicking the component as shown in
Figure 7-57. After this, click Next.

3. Click Install and when the installation procedure finishes, click Finish to exit
the installation wizard window.
4. Now, go to Start Programs IBM DB2 Document Manager Service
Manager as shown in Figure 7-58.
Tip: You are required to install the Service Manager component. For the best
system performance, we recommend you also install the Local Cache
Manager (even though it is optional) so that the local service will not need to
connect to the remote Cache Manager every time it needs a server
configuration.
Note: After installing the Document Manager service program in the new
machine, do not forget to install the same fix pack level that is in the Document
Manager server system.
