I recommend taking a look at the online Product Help Guide Install and Configure Worker Nodes. Since you've already installed Tableau Server on the primary computer, from here you'll need to stop Tableau Server on the primary, install the worker software on the worker node, and configure Tableau Server from the primary node to utilize the worker.
I hope this helps!
Thanks for your response. I had a good chance to go through the link you shared and I have couple of questions which I would like to get your help. Reading from the article it seems like installation procedure for 2 node and 3 node is different. My question is:
1. Should I need to download Tableau latest version worker setup and install in my primary machine and add that server IP in my primary computer server configuration window at servers tab?
2. If that's not the procedure should I install the tableau worker setup in worker machine and then go to primary machine and by using tabcmd should I move the repository to worker machine and it's all done? which one is correct method? can you guide me? If both are wrong lol I assume no can you help me in detail steps? Current situation is I have installed primary as of now. Thanks again and sorry for putting lot of questions.
Peter, the information you requested is clearly detailed in the guide. I don't think you reviewed the guide in detail.
To answer you question,
You need to install worker setup in worker machine and then go back to your Primary server. Stop the server. Open tableau configuration manager and add workers option, underwhich you specify worker IP/ name or you can allow it to scan it by itself. Save changed and restart the server. You should see worker up.
Thanks for responding. I am sorry if I haven't gone through completely. My bad. I got a doubt once I saw a note mentioning "Moving repository to worker" and can you throw some lights on it? Why we need to move repository if it's already default in primary machine?
Thanks in advance.
Is there a specific reason you are looking to move the repo from primary to secondary?
"Configure a preferred active repository if you want Tableau Server to select a specific node on startup. You might want to do this if you have a particular server you want to use for your active repository (a computer with more disk space or memory for example)".
