SmartTarget 2014 SP1 environment consists of Indexer node and 2 Query nodes. The 2 query nodes are behind a load balancer.
Topology.txt file looks something like this on hostname01 server:
instance name | host | preset | indexer | comment
staging-indexer|hostname01|3|-|Indexer and Preview live-query|hostname02|3|staging-indexer|Live Query Server live-query|hostname03|3|staging-indexer|Live Query Server
In SmartTarget 2014, when creating a Promotion from Content Manager, content is automatically updated on live query nodes.
In SmartTarget 2011, you had to manually publish the content out to the live nodes using the Business Manager UI.
Questions: How do I get the SmartTarget 2011 behavior back?
Is there a preference setting that will stop content from being automatically synched from staging to live?
Would taking the 2 query entries out of the hostname01 topology.txt file give me the behavior I need?
