Depending on your organization requirements, you may find it necessary to create additional Active Roles Web Interface sites.
When creating a new Web Interface site, you have the option to apply the configuration of an existing Web Interface site to the newly created one. If you have the Web Interface site tailored to suit your needs, and need to deploy its instance on another Web server, this option ensures that the new Web Interface site has the same set of menus, commands and pages as the existing one.
Initially, the Web Interface Setup creates three Web Interface sites based on the default configuration templates. Once the 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.

1) Start the Web Interface Sites Configuration wizard: click Start and select All Programs | Quest Software | Quest One ActiveRoles | Web Interface Sites Configuration
2) On the Web Interface Configuration page do any of the following:
• To create a site, click New.
• To modify a site, select it from the list and click Edit.
• To delete a site, select it from the list and click Delete.
• To export the configuration of a site to files, select the site and click Export.
3) If you have selected New or Edit, set up the following parameters:
• Location The Web site where the Web Interface site (virtual directory) is located.
• Virtual directory The name of the IIS virtual directory to which the Web Interface site is installed.
• Application name This name is primarily used to describe the Web Interface site, to help identify it.
• Configuration settings Create a new configuration based on a template and apply it to the Web Interface site, or use the configuration of an existing Web Interface site. It is also possible to import a configuration from files.
Configuration specifies customizable settings of user interface elements, such as menus,commands, and Web pages (forms), displayed by the Web Interface. The configuration of a Web Interface site is stored as part of the ActiveRoles Server configuration data, and is hosted by the Administration Service to which the Web Interface is connected. Multiple sites may use the same configuration. When you customize a Web Interface site, your changes are saved in the site’s configuration.
With the Create new configuration option, you can select one of the default configuration templates. The wizard creates the new configuration based on the template you have selected, and applies that configuration to the new Web Interface site.
With the Use existing configuration option, you can select one of the existing configurations. The wizard applies the selected configuration to the new Web Interface site.The configuration may be shared by other Web Interface sites.
With the Import Configuration from disk option, you can re-use a configuration that was earlier exported to files by using this wizard.
4) Click Next and follow the instructions in the wizard to complete the configuration process.
NOTE: During the configuration process, the wizard restarts the World Wide Web Publishing Service. While that service is being restarted, all Web applications deployed on the Web server are unavailable.
