2.3.1 Authorizing FUS on Workstations

2.3.2 Associating Users with a Shared Windows Account

In Quest ESSO Console, from the Directory panel, right-click the Organizational Unit that must contain your Application and select New/Template-based Application/Windows.
The Windows Application window appears.
The Application Access tab appears.
In the Application Access tab, add the application you have just created, and set the Account type to Shared.
The Accounts tab appears.
The Account Properties window appears.
In the SSO Data tab, create credentials for the account.
In the Ownership tab, you can assign an owner for the account. In this case, this owner becomes the only user authorized to modify the account password.
Quest ESSO allows you to manage password modification of a shared application account: if you do not set ownership, all users who are part of the group of users sharing the same application account are authorized to modify the shared account password. The other users automatically retrieve the new password.

2.3.3 Activating Shared Access FUS on Dedicated Access Points (Optional)

In Quest ESSO Console, from the Directory panel, click the access point security profile that applies to computers reserved for shared access FUS users.
In the Advanced Login tab, select Allow unlock if the same Windows credential is used:
If you select both Allow unlock if allowed by user security profile and Allow unlock if the same Windows credential is used check-boxes, you must take into account that FUS will be applied to users from a same Windows account, at the same hierarchy level.
Click Apply.

2.4 Installing and Configuring Public Access FUS

Quest Software provides Fast User Switching at the session level with Quest ESSO, with the "Session Management" extra license.
In Public Access FUS, the Windows session is the same for all users. The Windows session used is the one of the first user who has to open a Windows session on the workstation. Then users use their authentication device to access their own SSO context and applications.
Run the Quest ESSO installation wizard and follow the displayed instructions with the following guidelines:
If you use the Quest ESSO advanced installation, select Fast User Switching in the features selection window
Make sure the Authentication Manager and Integration with Windows features are not selected for installation.
If you want to use biometric authentication devices, you are advised to select the Biometrics enrolment tool feature to allow users to enroll their biometrics authentication data directly from the public access workstation.
For more details on Quest ESSO advanced installation, see Quest ESSO Installation Guide.
