Remote Install of Coveo for Sitecore question
Can anyone clarify when or why to use the different install and configuration processes described in these 2 articles?
We have one CD server that will also be the CES server and 2 CM servers that will utilize the search api.
The "Setting Up Coveo for Sitecore in a Remote Server Configuration" article is for when you install CES and the Sitecore CM on separate servers. This is not your case as CES will be installed on the same server as the Sitecore CM instance.
When installing on multiple Sitecore instances in a "farm", you should follow the "Installing Coveo for Sitecore in a CM/CD Configuration" documentation. Specifically, in your use case you would:
- Install CES and the Coveo Search API on your Sitecore CM server at step 2.
- Install the Coveo for Sitecore package on your Sitecore CM instance at step 3.
- Manually deploy Coveo for Sitecore files on your 2 Sitecore CD instances at step 3 in the "Deploying Coveo for Sitecore on other Content Management and Content Delivery hosts" subsection.
- Follow the procedure in the "Additional configuration steps for deploying Coveo for Sitecore on other Content Delivery hosts only" subsection on your 2 Sitecore CD instances.
