Delete a Web Interface site

On the Web Interface page in the Configuration Center main window, you can delete Web Interface sites: Click an entry in the list of sites and then click Delete on the toolbar. This operation only deletes the Web Interface site from the Web server, without deleting the site’s configuration object from the Administration Service.

When you delete a site, the site’s configuration object remains intact on the Administration Service. You can set up a Web Interface site with the same configuration as the site you have deleted, by choosing the option to use that object on the Configuration step in the wizard for creating or modifying Web Interface sites.

Export a Web Interface site’s configuration object to a file

From the Web Interface page in the Configuration Center main window, you can export site configuration objects: Click an entry in the list of sites and then click Export Configuration on the toolbar. A wizard starts, prompting you to specify the export file. The wizard then retrieves the site’s configuration object from the Administration Service, and saves the data from that object to the export file.

The export file could be considered a backup of the site’s configuration. You can set up a Web Interface site with the configuration restored from an export file, by importing that file on the Configuration step in the wizard for creating or modifying Web Interface sites.

Logging management tasks

You can use Configuration Center to enable or disable, and view diagnostic logs for the Active Roles components that are installed on the computer running Configuration Center. On the Logging page, Configuration Center lists the following information:

  • Component  Name of the component, such as Administration Service, Web Interface or Console (MMC Interface)
  • Logging  Indicates whether logging is enabled or disabled for the given component, and the logging level, such as Basic or Verbose
  • Log location  Depending upon the component, identifies either the folder containing the log files or the log file for that component

The toolbar on the Logging page allows you to perform the following tasks:

  • To enable or disable logging for a given component, select the component in the list, and then click Modify on the toolbar.
  • To open the folder that contains the log file or files for a given component, select the component in the list, and then click Browse with Explorer on the toolbar.
  • To examine the Administration Service log file in Log Viewer, select Administration Service in the list of components and then click Open in Log Viewer on the toolbar. For information about Log Viewer, see Active Roles Log Viewer later in this document.

Changing the Active Roles Admin account

Changing the Active Roles Admin account

When you configure the Active Roles Administration Service, you are prompted to specify the group or user account that will have unrestricted access to all Active Roles features and functions. This account is referred to as Active Roles Admin. By default, Active Roles Admin is the Administrators local group on the computer running the Administration Service. You can change this setting in the Configure Administration Service wizard when initially configuring the Administration Service.

After you have configured the Administration Service, you can choose a different Active Roles Admin account by using Active Roles Configuration Center on the computer running the Administration Service.

To change the Active Roles Admin Account

  1. Start Configuration Center on the computer running the Administration Service.

You can start Configuration Center by selecting Active Roles Active Roles Configuration Center on the Apps page or Start menu, depending upon the version of your Windows operating system. For detailed instructions, see Running Configuration Center.

  1. In the Configuration Center main window, under Administration Service, click Manage Settings.
  2. On the Administration Service page, in the Active Roles Admin area, click Change.
  3. On the Active Roles Admin page in the Change Active Roles Admin wizard that appears, click Browse and select the group or user account you want to be designated as Active Roles Admin.

    If you select a group, any member of that group will have the Active Roles Admin rights. If you select a user account, then only that account will have the Active Roles Admin rights.

  1. Click the Change button on the Active Roles Admin page.

The Active Roles Admin setting is specific to the instance of the Administration Service. If you have multiple Administration Service instances deployed in your environment, then you need to apply the changes on each computer running the Administration Service.
