Recommended Restart Order for Distributed Environment

Version 1

    When restarting the computers hosting Tableau Server in a distributed environment, is there a recommended order in which the servers should be restarted?


    Stop Tableau Server before restarting the computers running Tableau Server.

    1. On the computer running the Tableau Server primary, stop Tableau Server. For more information, see tabadmin stop in Tableau Help. Stopping Tableau Server on the primary will stop Tableau Server on the workers as well.
    2. Restart all computers running Tableau Server.
    3. On the computer running the Tableau Server primary, start Tableau Server. For more information, see tabadmin start in Tableau Help. Starting Tableau Server on the primary will start Tableau Server on the workers as well.
