Join Site

Description

The Join Site operation is used to connect a server machine to an existing site. This is considered a "push" mechanism, in which a server machine pushes its configuration to the site. For the operation to be successful, you need to provide an account with administrative privileges to the site.

When an attempt is made to join a site, the site validates the administrative credentials, then returns connection information about its configuration store back to the server machine. The server machine then uses the connection information to work with the configuration store.

If this is the first server machine in your site, use the Create Site operation instead.

NoteNote:

  • The Join Site operation is available only when a server machine is not participating in any site.
  • The pollAfter property in the response tells you that you need to wait for XX seconds after making this call before attempting to make any more calls in to the server.
