You can cluster VersaLexes in your network using VersaLex Pools. The following section describes setting up and monitoring your VersaLex Pools.
Creating a VersaLex pool
- Right-click Systems in the tree pane and select New VersaLex Pool.
The New VersaLex pool dialog box appears.
- Enter a unique VersaLex pool name and click OK.
- The new pool is selected in the tree, and a shortened version of the Add VersaLex dialog box below is displayed. Only a VersaLex serial number and its connection information are needed. Once the VersaLex is added, any other VersaLexes synchronizing with the VersaLex are automatically added to the new pool. This feature can take a few seconds to load.
- The pool can be subsequently renamed or hidden by right-clicking the pool in the tree pane and selecting Rename or Hide. Note that a hidden pool can be automatically revealed if a user group permission is added for that pool.
The Systems tree branch contains information regarding all the configured VersaLex pools. See Creating a VersaLex pool for information about creating, renaming, or removing a VersaLex pool.

The VersaLex Pool User Groups tab is view-only and shows which user groups have been granted access to this VersaLex pool. Use theSystem Privileges tab to grant access for each user group. See User Group: System Privileges Tab.
VersaLex Pool VersaLexes
The VersaLex Pool VersaLexes tab is view-only and shows the connection status of each VersaLex in this pool.
VersaLex Pool Transfers

Pre-requisite: Graphical viewing of transfers is only available for VersaLexes using Database Transfer Logging. See Transfers and Logs. If any VersaLexes are using a database product that is different from the database used by the local VersaLex, those drivers must also be installed in the local lib/ext directory.
The option to view the Details for all the VersaLexes in the pool is also available when the following conditions are met:
