The Sitecore Managed Cloud xDB supports scaled content management (CM) and content delivery (CD) servers. When you prepare an on-premise environment, you do not set the database connection strings because you do this later when you configure the xDB Cloud client and connection to the xDB Cloud service.

Note

This procedure describes how to prepare a scaled on-premise Sitecore environment. To prepare a standalone Sitecore instance, see the Sitecore documentation.

To prepare a local, scaled on-premise Sitecore environment:

  1. Download the spreadsheet that lists of all the configuration files that you must enable or disable for each server type:
  2. Configure the CD servers by following the instructions in the Configure a content delivery server topic. However, you must also:
    • Go to the Configure a content delivery server section and follow the instructions. Skip the steps that require you to set the database connection strings for MongoDB.
    • In the Config enable disable spreadsheet, consult the Content Delivery (CD) column and ensure that the relevant configuration files are enabled or disabled.
    • Refer to the Changes to configuration file settings table and update the parameter values of your configuration files accordingly.
  3. Configure the CM servers by following the instructions in the Configure a content management server topic. However, you must also:
    • Go to the Configure a content management server section and follow the instructions. Skip the steps that require you to set the database connection strings for MongoDB.
    • In the Config enable disable spreadsheet, consult the Content Management (CM) column and ensure that the relevant configuration files are enabled or disabled.
