Editing a Job Server

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. Enter this queue name in the One Identity Manager Service configuration file. Create a corresponding Job server entry for every queue.

  1. Select the category Base Data | Installation | Job server in the Designer.
  2. Start the Job Server Editor using the task Edit job server....
  3. Enter a new Job server using the menu item Job servers | New.

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.
Extended properties Additional information about Job servers. Shows the job server UID and the creation data (user, date). These cannot be edited.

The server function defines the functionality of a server in One Identity Manager. One Identity Manager processes are handled depending on the server function.

NOTE: More server functions may be available depending on which modules are installed.
Table 188: Permitted Server Functions

Server Function

Remark

Update Server

This server executes automatic software updating of all other servers. The server requires a direct connection to the database server that the One Identity Manager database is installed on. The server can execute SQL tasks.

The server with the installed One Identity Manager database, is labeled with this functionality during initial installation of the schema.

SQL processing server

This server can process SQL tasks. Several SQL processing servers can be set up to spread the load of SQL processes. The system distributes the generated SQL processes throughout all the Job servers with this server function.

One Identity Manager Service installed

Server on which a One Identity Manager Service is installed.

SMTP host

Server from which the One Identity Manager Service sends email notifications. Prerequisite for sending mails using the One Identity Manager Service is SMTP host configuration.
