Managing a Cluster from your Workstation

Managing a Cluster from your Workstation

Subject

The Cluster mode enables you to access several workstations simultaneously. When you:

  • Authenticate yourself on a workstation, sessions on other workstations you are using are also unlocked.
  • Lock or switch off a workstation, all other workstations you are using are also locked or switched off.
  • Reboot, you can reboot one or several workstations of your choice or the whole cluster at once.
  • Attach or release a workstation, you can add a workstation from an existing cluster or an entire cluster to your own cluster and then release it.

To manage your cluster, use the Cluster Wizard in the Authentication Manager dialog box.

You can customize the way the workstations of a cluster are displayed on your screen: see One Identity EAM Customization Guide.

Before starting
  • All the actions you can perform from your workstations are only available if they have previously been authorized by the EAM Console administrator: see Authentication Manager Cluster Administrator’s Guide.
  • The Cluster Client license keys must be installed on all EAM workstations on which the Cluster feature is used.
