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 Configuration database
  • The name of the Active Roles Configuration database
  • The Configuration database connection authentication mode (Windows authentication or SQL Server login)
  • The SQL Server instance that hosts the Active Roles Management History database
  • The name of the Active Roles Management History database
  • The Management History 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.

Import configuration data

Import configuration data

The task of importing configuration data arises when you upgrade the Administration Service. In this case, you need to transfer the Active Roles configuration data from the database used by your Administration Service of the earlier version to the database used by your Administration Service of the new version. To perform this task, click Import Configuration on the Administration Service page in the Configuration Center main window, and follow the steps in the Import Configuration wizard that appears.

The Import Configuration wizard prompts you to specify the Active Roles database from which you want to import the configuration data (source database) and identifies the database of the current Administration Service to which the configuration data will be imported (destination database), letting you choose the connection authentication mode (Windows authentication or SQL Server login) for each database.

The Add-on Advisor page displays all the pre-installed add-ons for the earlier version of Active Roles. These Add-ons must be uninstalled manually from the earlier version using the Active Roles Add-on Manager and from the system where ever applicable, before continuing configuration import.

After successfully uninstalling the add-ons, the wizard performs the import operation. During the import operation, the wizard retrieves and upgrades the data from the source database, and replaces the data in the destination database with the upgraded data from the source database.

For further information and step-by-step instructions, see “Importing configuration data” in the Active Roles Quick Start Guide.
