qb_domain = qube_domain_nameThe qb
The qb_domain value domain value is distinct and separate from the DNS domain name (e.g. pipelinefx.com) or an ActiveDirectory domain name.
The qb_domain is best left to the default value unless the administrator intends to set up 2 or more farms, in which case only the smaller of the two farms should use a non-default value.
A qube supervisor Qube! Supervisor will not respond to any request or transaction from a worker or client whose qb_domain value does not match its own.
If a supervisor Supervisor receives a worker registration request (such as when a new worker first starts up on the farm), but detects a mismatch between the workers and supervisorSupervisor's qb_domain value, the worker's registration request is rejected, and the worker will attempt to find another supervisor to bind to. If there are no more supervisors to reply to the worker, the worker will never appear in any supervisor's worker list.
If the request is a from a Qube! client, the request is ignored, and the client will attempt to locate another supervisor. If no supervisors is found whose qb_domain value matches the client's, the client will usually issue a
qb_domain = MyDomain
qb_domain = qube
It's inadvisable to vary from the default qb_domain value for the main part of your farm.
The reason to stick with the defaults is that if you deviate from the default qb_domain value on the superviorSupervisor, you have to set it on every client and worker in order to achieve proper operation. Any new machines you add will require this configuration change before they will work properly. Deviating from the default doesn't provide any advantages, and it's one more thing to miss during new host setup.
