2 Administering Clusters From Quest ESSO Console

Quest ESSO Console allows you to create and configure clusters of access points, and to authorize users to manage their own cluster.

2.1 Creating and Configuring a Cluster of Access Points

For more information on administration modes, see Quest ESSO Console Administrator Guide.
Quest ESSO must be configured in "manage-access-point" mode.
The "Cluster Server" license keys must be installed on the Quest ESSO Controller and the "Cluster Client" license keys must be installed on all Quest ESSO workstations on which you want to use the Cluster feature.
1.
In Quest ESSO Console, in the tree structure of the Directory panel, right-click the Organizational Unit that must contain your Cluster of access points and select New\Cluster of access points.
The Configuration tab appears.
2.
Fill in the Name field.
3.
Click the Add button to select the access points you want to add to the cluster.
Use the
Browse tab to browse the directory tree structure or use the Search tab to find the access point by typing its name.
4.
Define the cluster properties as explained in the following "Configuration" Tab Description section.
5.
Click Apply.

If a user adds an access point to his/her own cluster, the access point stays linked to the original cluster. When the user decides to release the access point, it is automatically associated back to its original cluster.
