Configure the Web Interface

The Configure Web Interface wizard creates the default Web Interface sites, getting the Web Interface ready for use. The wizard prompts you to choose which Administration Service will be used by the Web Interface you are configuring. The following options are available:

  • Use the Administration Service instance running on the same computer as the Web Interface
  • Use the Administration Service instance running on a different computer

    This option requires you to supply the fully qualified domain name of the computer running the desired instance of the Administration Service.

  • Let the Web Interface choose any Administration Service instance that has the same configuration as the given one

    This option requires you to supply the fully qualified domain name of the computer running the Administration Service instance of the desired configuration. If your environment employs Active Roles replication, this must be the computer running the Administration Service instance whose database server acts as the Publisher for the Active Roles configuration database.

To start the wizard, click Configure in the Web Interface area on the Dashboard page in the Configuration Center main window. For further information and step-by-step instructions, see the “Initial configuration” topic in the “Installing and configuring the Web Interface” section in the Active Roles Quick Start Guide.

Administration Service management tasks

After installing Active Roles, you perform the initial configuration task to create the Administration Service instance, getting it ready for use. Then, you can use Configuration Center to:

  • View or change the core Administration Service settings such as the service account, the Active Roles Admin account, and the database
  • Import configuration data from an Active Roles database of the current version or an earlier version to the current database of the Administration Service
  • Import management history data from an Active Roles database of the current version or an earlier version to the current database of the Administration Service
  • View the state of the Administration Service
  • Start, stop or restart the Administration Service

Here you can find an overview of these tasks.

View the core Administration Service settings

On the Administration Service page in the Configuration Center main window, you can view:

  • The logon name of the service account
  • The name of the group or user account that has the Active Roles Admin rights
  • The SQL Server instance that hosts the Active Roles database
  • The name of the Active Roles database
  • The database connection authentication mode (Windows authentication or SQL Server login)

Change the core Administration Service settings

From the Administration Service page in the Configuration Center main window, you can change:

  • The service account

    Click Change in the Service account area. In the wizard that appears, supply the logon name and password of the domain user account in which you want the Administration Service to run.

  • The Active Roles Admin account

    Click Change in the Active Roles Admin area. In the wizard that appears, specify the group or user account you want to have the Active Roles Admin rights.

  • The Active Roles database

    Click Change in the Active Roles database area. In the wizard that appears, specify the SQL Server instance and the database you want the Administration Service to use, and choose the database connection authentication mode (Windows authentication or SQL Server login). You have the option to specify a separate database for storing management history data.
