Background Worker (Clustered Environments)

After enabling PBA, navigate to AdminClustering.aspx and ensure that at least one of your web nodes has the Background Worker column enabled, as below.

  • In Secret Server versions prior to 10.1.000000, all nodes process web requests, but only the Primary Node runs background tasks.
  • In 10.1.000000 and later, the Background Worker feature allows you to specify the Secret Server nodes that run background tasks.
