Pre-requisites to run the Configuration Center

To run Configuration Center on a given computer, you must be logged on with a user account that has administrator rights on that computer.

If neither the Administration Service nor the Web Interface is installed on the local computer, then Configuration Center prompts you to select a remote computer. In the Select Server dialog box that appears, supply the fully qualified domain name of a server, on which the Administration Service or the Web Interface (or both) is installed, and type the logon name and password of a domain user account that has administrator rights on that server. You can connect to a remote server at any time by selecting the Connect to another server command from the menu on the heading bar at the top of the Configuration Center main window, which also displays the Select Server dialog box.

Before launching Configuration Center, it is recommended to perform the following steps:

  1. On the system where Active Roles is installed, browse to C:\Program Files\One Identity\Active Roles\7.1\Shell.
  2. Right click on the ActiveRolesServiceConfiguration.psm1 file and select Properties.
  3. On the ActiveRolesServiceConfiguration Properties dialog box, click Digital Signatures->Details.
  4. On the Digital Signatures Details dialog box, click View Certificate.
  5. On the Certificate dialog box, click Install Certificate….
  6. On the Certificate Import Wizard dialog box, from the Store Location select Local Machine and click Next.
  7. On the Certificate Store section, select Place all certificates in the following store and click Browse.
  8. On the Select Certificate Store dialog box, select Trusted Publishers and click OK.

    The Certificate store field is populated with the selected store name.

  1. Click Next.

The Certificate Import Wizard displays the selected certificate store.

  1. Click Finish.

    The Certificate Import Wizard displays a message indicating that the import was successful.

NOTE: If the Certificates from Trusted Publishers are not installed on the system on which Active Roles is installed, then the Configuration Center may not launch successfully.

Tasks you can perform in Configuration Center

Managing Configuration of Active Roles > Using Configuration Center > Tasks you can perform in Configuration Center

Configuration Center enables you to perform:

  • Initial configuration tasks, creating the Administration Service instance and the default Web Interface sites
  • Configuration management tasks, letting you manage the existing instance of the Administration Service or Web Interface
  • Logging management tasks, enabling or disabling, and viewing diagnostic logs for Active Roles components that are installed on the computer running Configuration Center

To perform configuration tasks, you need administrator rights on computer on which the Administration Service or Web Interface is installed. In addition, if you are going to create a new Active Roles database, then you need SQL Server rights sufficient to create databases. If you don’t plan to create a new database, then you only need to be a member of the db_owner fixed database role in the Active Roles database used by the Administration Service.

To perform logging management tasks, you need administrator rights on the computer running Configuration Center.

Initial configuration tasks

Active Roles Setup only installs and registers the Active Roles files, without performing any configuration. Upon completion of Active Roles Setup, Configuration Center is used to create an instance of the Administration Service and deploy the default Web Interface sites. Here you can find an overview of these initial configuration tasks.

Configure the Administration Service

The Configure Administration Service wizard creates the Administration Service instance, getting the Administration Service ready for use. The wizard prompts you to supply the following settings:

  • The logon name and password of the account in which this Administration Service instance will be running (service account)
  • The name of the group or user account that will have full access to all Active Roles features and functions through this Administration Service instance (Active Roles Admin)
  • The database in which this Administration Service instance will store the configuration data and management history data

    You have the option to create a new database, or use an existing database of the current Active Roles version. It is possible to have multiple Administration Service instances use the same database.

  • The authentication mode that this Administration Service instance will use when connecting to the database

    With the Windows authentication option, the Administration Service will use the credentials of the service account; with the SQL Server authentication option, the Administration Service will use the SQL login name and password you supply in the wizard.

To start the wizard, click Configure in the Administration Service area on the Dashboard page in the Configuration Center main window. For further information and step-by-step instructions, see “Steps to deploy the Administration Service” in the Active Roles Quick Start Guide.
