Administration Service auto-connect settings

Administrative Template > Administration Service auto-connect settings

The Administrative Template provides the following settings that allow you to limit the list of Active Roles’ Administration Service instances for auto-connect:

When applied to a computer running an Active Roles client application, such as the Active Roles console, Web Interface or ADSI Provider, these settings make it possible to restrict auto-connection of the client application to a pre-defined set of computers running the Administration Service, with inclusions or exclusions of certain computers from the pool of the Administration Service instances to auto-connect.

You can enable all these settings or only some of these settings. For example, if you only want to allow the client application to auto-connect to specific instances of the Administration Service (and only to those instances), then you could only enable and configure the Allowed Servers for Auto-connect setting. If you only want to prevent the client application from auto-connecting to particular instances of the Administration Service, you could only enable and configure the Disallowed Servers for Auto-connect setting. If you want the client application to auto-connect to a server identified by a computer alias, enable the Additional Servers for Auto-connect setting and add the computer alias to that setting.

The following rules apply when two or more settings are enabled. If the name of a given computer is listed in both the Allowed Servers for Auto-connect and Disallowed Servers for Auto-connect settings, then the client application is allowed to auto-connect to the Administration Service on that computer. If the name or alias of a particular computer is listed in the Additional Servers for Auto-connect setting, then the client application auto-connects to the Administration Service on that computer regardless of the Allowed Servers for Auto-connect and Disallowed Servers for Auto-connect settings.

'Allowed Servers for Auto-connect' setting

Administrative Template > Administration Service auto-connect settings > 'Allowed Servers for Auto-connect' setting

When applied to a computer running an Active Roles client application, such as the Active Roles console, Web Interface or ADSI Provider, this setting determines the instances of the Active Roles Administration Service to which the client application is allowed to auto-connect. This setting only affects the Administration Service instances that are published by Active Roles for auto-discovery. To have the client application connect to the Administration Service on a computer whose name or alias is not published for Administration Service auto-discovery, use the Additional Servers for Auto-connect setting.

If you enable this setting, you can specify a list of computer names identifying the computers running the Administration Service to which the client application is allowed to auto-connect. In a computer name, you may use an asterisk wildcard character (*) to represent any string of characters. If a given computer is listed in this setting, then the client application is allowed to auto-connect to the Administration Service on that computer. If a given computer is not listed in this setting, then the client application is not allowed to auto-connect to the Administration Service on that computer unless the name or alias of that computer is listed in the Additional Servers for Auto-connect setting.

If this setting is disabled or not configured, the client application normally auto-connects to any available Administration Service that is published by Active Roles for auto-discovery. However, you can use the Disallowed Servers for Auto-connect setting to prevent the client application from auto-connecting to certain published instances of the Administration Service.

'Disallowed Servers for Auto-connect' setting

Administrative Template > Administration Service auto-connect settings > 'Disallowed Servers for Auto-connect' setting

When applied to a computer running an Active Roles client application, such as the Active Roles console, Web Interface or ADSI Provider, this setting determines the instances of the Active Roles Administration Service to which the client application is not allowed to auto-connect. This setting only affects the Administration Service instances that are published by Active Roles for auto-discovery.

If you enable this setting, you can specify a list of computer names identifying the computers running the Administration Service to which the client application is not allowed to auto-connect. In a computer name, you may use an asterisk wildcard character (*) to represent any string of characters. If a given computer is listed in this setting, then the client application is not allowed to auto-connect to the Administration Service on that computer unless the name or alias of that computer is listed in the Allowed Servers for Auto-connect or Additional Servers for Auto-connect setting.

If this setting is disabled or not configured, the client application normally auto-connects to any available Administration Service that is published by Active Roles for auto-discovery. However, you can use the Allowed Servers for Auto-connect and Additional Servers for Auto-connect settings to specify explicitly the instances of the Administration Service to which the client application should auto-connect.

'Additional Servers for Auto-connect' setting

Administrative Template > Administration Service auto-connect settings > 'Additional Servers for Auto-connect' setting

When applied to a computer running an Active Roles client application, such as the Active Roles console, Web Interface or ADSI Provider, this setting specifies the instances of the Active Roles Administration Service to which the client application auto-connects regardless of whether or not those instances are published by Active Roles for auto-discovery.

If you enable this setting, you can specify a list of computer names or aliases identifying the computers running the Administration Service to which the client application auto-connects even though it cannot discover the Administration Service on those computers by using Active Roles’ service connection points in Active Directory. If a given computer is listed in this setting, then the client application auto-connects to the Administration Service on that computer regardless of the Allowed Servers for Auto-connect and Disallowed Servers for Auto-connect settings.

If this setting is disabled or not configured, the client application normally auto-connects to any available Administration Service that is published by Active Roles for auto-discovery. However, you can use the Allowed Servers for Auto-connect and Disallowed Servers for Auto-connect settings to restrict auto-connection of the client application to specific instances of the Administration Service published for auto-discovery.
