Target System Managers

For more detailed information about implementing and editing application roles, see the One Identity Manager Application Roles Administration Guide.

Implementing Application Roles for Target System Managers
  1. The One Identity Manager administrator assigns employees to be target system managers.
  2. These target system managers add employees to the default application role for target system managers.

    The default application role target system managers are entitled to edit all domains in One Identity Manager.

  3. Target system managers can authorize more employees as target system managers, within their scope of responsibilities and create other child application roles and assign individual domains.
Table 21: Default Application Roles for Target System Managers
User Task

Target System Managers

 

Target system managers must be assigned to the application role Target systems | Active Directory or a sub application role.

Users with this application role:

  • Assume administrative tasks for the target system.
  • Create, change or delete target system objects, like user accounts or groups.
  • Edit password policies for the target system.
  • Prepare groups for adding to the IT Shop.
  • Configure synchronization in the Synchronization Editor and defines the mapping for comparing target systems and One Identity Manager.
  • Edit the synchronization's target system types and outstanding objects.
  • Authorize other employees within their area of responsibility as target system managers and create child application roles if required.

To initially specify employees to be target system administrators

  1. Log in to the Manager as One Identity Manager administrator (application role Base role | Administrators)
  2. Select the category One Identity Manager Administration | Target systems | Administrators.
  3. Select Assign employees in the task view.
  4. Assign the employee you want and save the changes.

To add the first employees to the default application as target system managers.

  1. Log yourself into the Manager as target system administrator (application role Target systems | Administrator).
  2. Select the category One Identity Manager Administration | Target systems | Active Directory.
  3. Select Assign employees in the task view.
  4. Assign the employees you want and save the changes.

To authorize other employees as target system managers when you are a target system manager

  1. Login to the Manager as target system manager.
  2. Select the application role in the category Active Directory | Basic configuration data | Target system managers.
  3. Select Assign employees in the task view.
  4. Assign the employees you want and save the changes.

To define target system managers for individual domains.

  1. Login to the Manager as target system manager.
  2. Select the category Active Directory | Domains.
  3. Select the domain in the result list.
  4. Select Change master data in the task view.
  5. Select the application role on the General tab in the Target system manager menu.

    - OR -

    Click next to the Target system manager menu to create a new application role.

Editing a Server

Editing a Server

Servers must know your server functionality in order to handle Active Directory specific processes in One Identity Manager. These may be the synchronization server, home server or profile server, for example.

You have several options for defining a server's functionality:

  • Create an entry for the Job server in the category Base Data | Installation | Job server in the Designer. For detailed information, see the One Identity Manager Configuration Guide.

  • Select an entry for the Job server in the category Manager | Basic configuration data | Server in the Active Directory and edit the Job server master data.

    Use this task if server hardware has already been declared in One Identity Manager and you want to configure special functions for the Job server, for example, home server or profile server.

NOTE: One Identity Manager must be installed, configured and started in order for a server to execute its function in the One Identity Manager Service network. Proceed as follows in the One Identity Manager Installation Guide.

To edit a Job server and its functions

  1. Select the category Active Directory | Basic configuration data | Server in the Manager.
  2. Select the Job server entry in the result list.
  3. Select Change master data in the task view.
  4. Edit the Job server's master data.
  5. Select Assign server functions in the task view and specify server functionality.
  6. Save the changes.

Master Data for a Job Server

NOTE: All editing options are available to you in the Designer, in the category Base Data | Installation | Job server.

Table 22: Job Server Properties

Property

Meaning

Server Job server name.
Full server name Full server name in accordance with DNS syntax.

Example:

<Name of servers>.<Fully qualified domain name>

Target System Computer account target system.
Language culture Language of the server.
Server is cluster Specifies whether the server maps a cluster.
Server belongs to cluster Cluster to which the server belongs.

NOTE: The properties Server is cluster and Server belongs to cluster are mutually exclusive.
Local Active Directory DC You can enter a domain controller that is physically nearby for home servers or profile servers on a member server. The Active Directory is accessed over it when jobs are being processed. If no server is entered the main domain controller for the domain is used.
IP address (IPv6) Internet protocol version 6 (IPv6) server address.
IP address (IPv4) Internet protocol version 4 (IPv4) server address.
Max. number of homes Maximum number of home directories to maintain if the server is a home server. This number is compare with the number of (according to the database) existing home directories on the server (<Homes created>) when a new home directory is added for a user. If this number is less than the given maximum number of directories, the home can be added. Otherwise the addition of a new home directory is forbidden.
Homes created Number of homes directories already in existing on the home server.
Copy process (source server) Permitted copying methods that can be used when this server is the source of a copy action. Only the methods "Robocopy" and "Rsync" are currently supported.

If no method is given, the One Identity Manager Service determines the operating system of the server during runtime. Replication then takes place between servers with a Windows operating system using "Robocopy" and between servers with the Linux operating system using "rsync". If the operating systems of the source and destination servers differ, it is important that the right copy method is applied for successful replication. A copy method is chosen that supports both servers.

Copy process (target server) Permitted copying methods that can be used when this server is the destination of a copy action.
Max. home storage space [MB] Maximum permitted storage in MB for home directories on the home server. This is taken into account when the home directory is allocated.
Coding Character set coding that is used to write files to the server.
Parent Job server Name of the parent Job server.
Executing server Name of the executing server. The name of the server that exists physically and where the processes are handled.

This input is evaluated when One Identity Manager Service is automatically updated. If the server is handling several queues the process steps are not supplied until all the queues that are being processed on the same server have completed their automatic update.

Queue Name of the queue to handle the process steps. Each One Identity Manager Service within the network must have a unique queue identifier. The process steps are requested by the job queue using exactly this queue name. The queue identifier is entered in the One Identity Manager Service configuration file.
Server operating system Operating system of the server. This input is required to resolve the path name for replicating software profiles. Permitted values are "Win32", "Windows", "Linux" and "Unix". If the input is empty, "Win32" is assumed.
Service account data One Identity Manager Service user account information. In order to replicate between non-trusted systems (non-trusted domains, Linux server) the One Identity Manager Service user information has to be declared for the servers in the database. This means that the service account, the service account domain and the service account password have to be entered for the server.
One Identity Manager Service installed Specifies whether a One Identity Manager Service is installed on this server. This option is enabled by the procedure QBM_PJobQueueLoad the moment the queue is called for the first time.

The option is not automatically removed. If necessary, you can reset this option manually for servers whose queue is no longer enabled.

Stop One Identity Manager Service Specifies whether the One Identity Manager Service has stopped. If this option is set for the Job server, the One Identity Manager Service does not process any more tasks.

You can make the service start and stop with the appropriate administrative permissions in program "Job Queue Info".

No automatic software update Specifies whether to exclude the server from automatic software updating.

NOTE: Servers must be manually updated if this option is set.
Software update running Specifies whether a software update is currently being executed.
Server Function Server functionality in One Identity Manager. One Identity Manager processes are handled depending on the server function.
