Before you start the configuration, make sure you've gone through the items on this checklist, completing each process and collecting each piece of information.
Figure 1 shows the example configuration, with one Central node (Central) and two additional nodes (Rim_Node_01 and Rim_Node_02).

Creating a Virtual Proxy
- In the QMC, open the Virtual Proxies settings.
- Click Create New to create the new virtual proxy (Figure 2), which will mirror the settings for the Central Node.

Session Cookie Domain
- Select the Advanced properties from the menu on the right.
- Add the virtual proxy name in Description.
- Add the domain name you need to use in the Session Cookie Domain field (Figure 3). This setting will enable cookies to shared between the main domain and any subdomains.

Prefix and Additional Settings
- Add a Prefix for testing purposes (Figure 4). If the setup is successful, it can be removed.
Figure 4: Prefix
- Enter any additional settings to match the new virtual proxy configuration to the default virtual proxy configuration.
Session Cookie Header Name
- Open the Identification settings and change the Session cookie header name of your new virtual proxy (Figure 5). You need to enter a unique value here, as you can't link to the default virtual proxy with a name that's already being used and will return an error if you try.
Figure 5: Session Cookie Header Name
- Click Apply to save your settings and create the new virtual proxy.
Linking to the Default Virtual Proxy
Once you've entered a unique Session cookie header name you can link the new virtual proxy to the relevant default virtual proxy.
- Click the virtual proxy Description to open edit mode.
- Select Proxies from the Associated items settings.
- Select Link at the bottom of the page (Figure 6) to open the Select proxy services menu.
- Select the Node you want to link to from the list.
Figure 6: Proxies
- Check the properties for the default and new virtual proxies match , apart from the Session cookie domain, Prefix, and Cookies header name.
- Change the Prefix in the default virtual proxy to default
- You can also remove the vizlib prefix from the new virtual proxy if it's no longer required.
The new virtual proxy has now been created successfully.
Configuring the Remaining Nodes
To configure any remaining nodes, (Rim_Node1 and Rim_Node2 in this example) you can use this article by returning to Creating a Virtual Proxy and following the same steps for the other default virtual proxies. Figure 7 shows the completed configuration as it would appear in the QMC.

The Vizlib Server Configuration article contains more information on post-install checks to ensure your installation has completed successfully.
