To connect Rackspace cloud servers to dedicated servers using Rackspace RackConnect technology.
NOTE: This document only applies to RackConnect 2.0.
NOTE: Windows ServerTemplates currently do not support RackConnect on Legacy or Open Cloud without a professional services engagment. Contact your account manager or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Rackspace offers a public cloud (Cloud Servers) in addition to their dedicated managed hosting services. RackConnect is a service that allows you to seamlessly link Rackspace Cloud Servers with dedicated servers in the Rackspace managed hosting infrastructure.
This RackConnect script allows new application servers to automatically connect to your database on the managed hosting side upon launch. You can also use the script to connect any type of Cloud Server with a server in the managed hosting infrastructure.
Use the following steps to add the RackConnect script to an application ServerTemplate so that any servers that are created and launched with that ServerTemplate automatically connect to your dedicated hosted database server. The same steps can be slightly modified for similar scenarios where Cloud Servers connect to dedicated hosted servers.
