Cluster settings

Use the Cluster settings to create a clustered environment, to monitor the health of the cluster and its members, and to define managed networks.

Before creating a Safeguard for Privileged Passwords cluster, it is recommended you read the Disaster recovery chapter to gain a better understanding of how clustering works in Safeguard for Privileged Passwords.

A Safeguard for Privileged Passwords cluster consists of two or more Safeguard for Privileged Passwords Appliances configured to communicate over TCP port 655. One appliance in the cluster is designated as the "primary". Non-primary appliances are referred to as "replicas".

It is the responsibility of the Appliance Administrator or the Operations Administrator to create a cluster, monitor the status of the cluster, and define managed networks.

Navigate to Administrative Tools | Settings | Cluster.

Table 178: Cluster settings
Setting Description

Cluster Management
