Configure a Node Manager and API Gateway instance

This topic describes how to configure and start a Node Manager and API Gateway instance on the appliance.

There are two different approaches for configuring your appliance as a Node Manager, depending on your API Gateway domain:

  • API Gateway Appliance as Admin Node Manager – If this appliance is the first server in a new API Gateway domain, configure the appliance as an Admin Node Manager.
  • API Gateway Appliance as local Node Manager – If this appliance is the second or subsequent server and connects to an existing API Gateway domain, configure the appliance as a local Node Manager.

For more details on each approach, see Create a Node Manager. To create an API Gateway instance on the appliance (whether the appliance is an Admin Node Manager or local Node Manager), see Create an API Gateway instance.

For more details on concepts such as domains, Node Managers, and API Gateway instances, see the API Gateway Concepts Guide.
