Dear All,

In the deployment order. What is the meaning of below:

Set up your Environment ActiveGate and provide the Cluster ActiveGate public address for external communication.

Where and when to provide a public address?

Regard,

Babar

Not sure, where you got that from? Typically, Environment will get all other ActiveGate endpoints automatically.

Hello @Radoslaw_Szulgo 

Scenario 2: Pure Dynatrace Managed setup

Because the Environment ActiveGate starts communication with the Cluster ActiveGate upon installation, the Cluster ActiveGate must be operational and available via the public IP address beforehand. As a result, if you plan to use the Environment ActiveGate, the deployment order is important:

  • Set up your Dynatrace Managed Cluster.
  • Set up your Cluster ActiveGate and make sure that it can connect to the Dynatrace Managed Cluster. Also, make sure that the Cluster ActiveGate has a public IP address and is accessible from outside your network.
  • Set up your Environment ActiveGate and provide the Cluster ActiveGate public address for external communication.

Ah! Clear now. 

 

So that's the wording issue - We'll fix it today. 

 

The author meant here that you should make sure to set IP a Cluster AG domain in Cluster Management Console -> Settings -> Public endpoints: Cluster ActiveGate endpoint

 

This is required, as Environment AG will get that endpoint as a communication entry - as I wrote automatically. You don't need to provide it anyhow.
