Connect Client Machine to a New(DR) Server–KOFAX CAPTURE SERVER 9.0

Manual Failover configuration – KOFAX CAPTURE 9.0 Client (Purpose – In Case of any failure on existing Kofax application Server, Each and Every Client can be failover manually to a New Server which is already Kofax Installed) ——————————————————————————————————————————————

This is for describe configuration for Kofax application Failover configuration on client/workstation from

Current Server (Production Application Server) to another (DR Server).

I have connected my client to Application Server 1 and Kofax application is up and Running.

What I wanted to do is – Connect client/Workstation to new server which installed as DR (Independent of DB, CaptureSV Folder from production) in totally separate environment using separate Database and CaptureSV Location.

It’s an easy configuration via AcDeployUtil command line tool which is provided by Kofax. Follow these steps to start.

Tool is located at C:\Program Files (x86)\Kofax\CaptureSS\ServLib\Bin, copy this path to clip board

Get in to the Tool using below command.

Cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Kofax\CaptureSS\ServLib\Bin

It will direct in to the tool, then type AcDeployUtil/ServerPath(Parameter):Z:\(UNC/Mapped Name for CaptureSV Folder )

[Here I given mapped folder drive letter as I used by mapping to client]

Eg –


That’s all….!!

And it will appear “Workstation disk image deployment complete once it is successful”.

Open Kofax from client and now it should Work via new server.
