If you have installed the tc Server plug-in, and have appropriate user privileges, you can manage tc Server applications that are deployed on a selected tc Runtime instance, or are deployed for a group, using the vCenter Hyperic Application Management page.

If you are a vCenter Hyperic super-user, you can use all the tc Runtime features in the vCenter Hypericuser interface. If you are logged on to vCenter Hyperic as a non-super-user, you require specific permissions to use the tc Runtime features.

A vCenter Hyperic group is a set of managed resources. A group whose members are all of the same resource type is referred to as a compatible group. Grouping tc Runtime instances enables you manage applications across multiple tc Runtime instances.

If you have sufficient privileges, you can create a group and assign resources to it. You can manage and monitor the resources in a compatible group at group level.

A compatibility group is not equivalent to a tc Runtime cluster.

Navigate to the Application Management page of a tc Runtime instance or group to manage tc Server applications.

Grouping tc Runtime instances enables you to deploy an application to multiple tc Runtime instances with a single command, instead of deploying to each instance individually.

You can deploy an application to a single tc Runtime instance or to a group of tc Runtime instances.

You can see a list of all applications deployed to all servers in the group in the Deployed Applications section of the Application Management page for a server instance or group .

Undeploying an application removes it from the tc Runtime instance or group.

Starting an application makes it available to users. You must have previously deployed the application to be able to start it.

Stopping an application makes it unavailable to users.

When you reload an existing application, it shuts down and then reloads.

You can configure various tc Server parameters.
