The settings for the Web Interface that determine which Administration Service the Web Interface connects to normally would require re-installing the Web Interface components to allow you to choose a different configuration setting.
This setting can be manually configured by modifying the Settings.xml file located in one of the following locations, depending on the version of Active Roles you are currently running:
6.9 and below
C:\Program Files\Quest Software\Quest One ActiveRoles\Web Interface
C:\Program Files\Dell\Active Roles\7.0\Web\Public\xml
7.2 and later
C:\Program Files\One Identity\Active Roles\7.x\Web\Public\xml
The following settings is a basic Settings.xml file that is properly commented to describe available settings:
<!--EDMServiceName identifies EDM service to which the Web client is connected. After you have changed the service name, you must restart IIS.!-->
<!--EDMServiceType identifies type of using EDM service;
0 - use local service,
1 - use any available service,
2 - use EDMServiceName service
3 - use any service from EDMServiceName replication group -->
<Connect EDMServiceType="0" EDMServiceName="">
Modifying the settings in this file requires a restart of IIS, as documented in the above XML comments.
A note regarding the use of number 3 for the EDMServiceType settings, this refers to Microsoft SQL Server Replication Groups.
NOTE: It is recommended to only use FQDNs when entering the EDMServiceName, especially if you are using SPNs (Service Principal Names). Using an IP will cause Kerberos authentication to fail.
