    3 node Distributed enviroment  and access to the databases

    Tatiana Titova

      I am looking through the Tableau for the Enterprise white paper specifically at the 3-Server (24-Core) Cluster distributed environment. In it the one machine ( gateway or primary ) runs backgrounder, repository and extract host and two others run app server, data server and vizqlserver.  Is it safe to assume that in this configuration the primary machine does not need connections to any of the databases for the workbooks? For example , the help states - "the backgrounder refreshes scheduled

      extracts and manages other background tasks."   Does backgrounder need a connection to the data source to do its job? What about extract host?
