Installing Additional Service
This section covers the database-related steps of the Setup Wizard in the following assumptions:
• You have at least one Administration Service version 6.9 up and running in your environment.
• You are installing one more Administration Service for load distribution and fault tolerance.
To install additional Service
- On the Service Deployment Options page, click Install additional Service.
- On the Configuration Synchronization Options page, click one of the following options, depending on how you want to synchronize the configuration of the new Administration Service with the configuration of the existing Administration Services:
• Share common configuration database Lets the new Administration Service use the database of an existing Administration Service so that the new Administration Service has the same configuration as the existing one.
• Create new database, to be synchronized via replication After installing the Administration Service, you will need to set up Quest One ActiveRoles replication for the new Administration Service to have the same configuration as existing ones.
- If you have selected the option Share common configuration database, follow the instructions provided later in this section (see “Using Common Configuration Database”).
- If you have selected the option Create new database, to be synchronized via replication, use the instruction provided in the solution Installing Initial Service to complete the wizard.
The database created by this option holds the pristine configuration of the Administration Service. To update and synchronize the new database with the configuration data of the Administration Services that were earlier deployed in your environment, you need to use the replication function. For instructions on how to set up replication of configuration data, refer to the Quest One ActiveRoles Administrator Guide.
Using Common Configuration Database
By selecting the option Share common configuration database you set up the new Administration Service so that it connects to the database of an existing Administration Service. The newly installed Administration Service automatically becomes a replica of the existing one.
This option makes it possible to centralize configuration storage. You can deploy multiple Administration Services of the same configuration without having to synchronize multiple databases via replication. Rather, you have the option for multiple Administration Services to share configuration data held in a single database on centrally deployed SQL Server.
This option also ensures that the newly installed Administration Service can immediately be used as a replacement for the existing Administration Service. Switching between Administration Services is transparent to Quest One ActiveRoles users as both instances of the Administration Service have the same configuration.
To have Administration Services use common configuration database
- On the Configuration Synchronization Options page, click Share common configuration database.
- On the Database and Connection Settings page, in the Database area, specify the SQL Server and database being used by an existing Administration Service version 6.9.
- On the Database and Connection Settings page, in the Connection area, select the appropriate authentication option:
• To have the new Administration Service connect to SQL Server using the Administration Service account, click Use Windows authentication.
• To have the new Administration Service connect to SQL Server using a SQL Server login, click Use SQL Server authentication, and type the login name and password.
On the Database and Connection Settings page you can select the Store Management History in a separate database check box.
- On the Configuration Database Summary page, review the database and connection settings you are going to use.
- Complete the Provision of Encryption Keys page.
- Follow the instructions in the wizard to complete the installation.
Steps to Install the Console
The Quest One ActiveRoles console can be installed on any computer that meets the system
requirements and has a reliable network connection to a computer running the Administration Service.
It can also be installed on the Administration Service computer.
To install the Quest One ActiveRoles console
- Run autorun.exe, located in the root folder of the Quest One ActiveRoles DVD.
- In Autorun window, click Quest One ActiveRoles, and then click Console (MMC Interface) in the list of the product components.
- Follow the instructions in the Setup Wizard to complete the installation.
To install the Web Interface
- In the Quest One ActiveRoles DVD Autorun window, click Quest One ActiveRoles, andt hen click Web Interface in the list of the product components.
- Follow the instructions in the Setup Wizard.
- On the Administration Service Selection page, choose from the following options to specify what Administration Service you want the Web Interface to use:
• Administration Service on this computer Use the Administration Service running on the computer where you are installing the Web Interface.
• Administration Service on the specified computer Enter the name of the computer running the Administration Service you want the Web Interface to use.
• Any Administration Service of the same configuration Specify any Administration Service whose database holds the necessary configuration, by typing in the DNS name of the computer running that Administration Service. If Quest One ActiveRoles replication is used to synchronize configuration data, this must be any Administration Service whose database server acts as the Publisher for the configuration database.
- On the Ready to Install the Application page, click Next to start the installation process.
- Wait while the wizard completes the installation.
The Setup Wizard creates three Web Interface sites based on the default configuration templates. Once installation has been completed, you can modify the Web server-related parameters, such as the virtual directory name, for these Web Interface sites, or delete Web Interface sites. You can also create additional Web Interface sites.
