Limitations

The following limitations apply to SPS when you deploy it from the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.

Caution:

Do not export or import configuration between a physical SPS deployment and a virtual one. Because of the differences and limitations between physical and virtual appliances, configure the virtual appliance from scratch to ensure proper functionality. When you migrate a virtual SPS to another one, you can export and import the configuration.

  • Root login is not available on the console.

  • SSH access is only available after you have completed the Welcome Wizard.

  • Currently, the data that is entered during the provisioning phase (for example, the username and the IP address) of creating the virtual machine in Azure is not transferred to SPS. Therefore, only the data entered in the Welcome Wizard will be used.

  • By default, you can only use Physical interface 1 (eth0) of SPS, with a single IP address. Aside from changing the IP address of SPS, do not modify other interface-related settings (additional logical interfaces, IP forwarding, and so on) on the Basic Settings > Network page of SPS.

    The number of interfaces you can use depends on the size of your Azure VM. If your VM allows you to use multiple interfaces, you can configure multiple interfaces in SPS. For details, see VM with multiple NICs.

  • The Seal the box functionality is not available.

  • The High Availability support of SPS was designed to work between two physical SPS appliances. This feature is not available in Azure environments. For further details, see the High Availability and redundancy in Microsoft Azure.

  • Due to Azure requirements, an additional 5-minute delay has been added to the boot process. This ensures that the root device appears in the system.

  • The size of the virtual disk in Azure is 100 GB, which you can increase. To increase the size of the virtual disk, see "Modifying the disk size of a SPS virtual appliance" in the Installation Guide.

  • SPS currently cannot receive its IP address using DHCP. Make sure that:

    • The IP address you have configured in Azure and the IP address that you configure for SPS for the Physical interface 1 on the Networking settings part of the Welcome Wizard are the same. Otherwise, you will not be able to access SPS.

    • You set the internal IP static on the Network Interfaces tab of the Virtual Machine.

    • Do not assign a public IP address to SPS, use SPS as a component of your internal infrastructure. If you absolutely must configure Welcome Wizard from a publicly accessible IP address, note that SPS will be publicly accessible. If you assign a public IP to the web management interface, consider the following:

  • Upgrading SPS in Azure is the same as upgrading a physical appliance: you have to upload the firmware on the SPS web interface. For detailed instructions, see Upgrade Guide.

Prerequisites

The following prerequisites must be met to deploy SPS in Microsoft Azure:

  • You have a valid One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions license. When deployed from the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, the One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions uses the "Bring your own license" model. Note that to deploy two active SPS nodes as an availability set, you must purchase two standalone SPS licenses. To purchase a license, contact our Sales Team.

  • Microsoft recommends to use the Azure Resource Manager (ARM) deployment model. When you install SPS from the Azure Marketplace, SPS supports only this deployment method. If you need to deploy SPS into and infrastructure that uses the Classic deployment model, contact your One Identity sales representative.

  • You have a Microsoft Azure account.

High Availability and redundancy in Microsoft Azure

In a Microsoft Azure deployment, the high-availability and redundancy of the SPS appliance is provided by the Microsoft Azure infrastructure, according to the Azure Storage SLA.

Redundancy

The data in your Microsoft Azure storage account is always replicated to ensure durability and high availability, meeting the Azure Storage SLA. The exact type of replication depends on your storage account settings, but every disk is stored in 3 copies.

For details, see Locally redundant storage in the Azure Storage replication document, and Service Healing - Auto-recovery of Virtual Machines.
