Description

Importance

Password Manager x64

The suite of role-based sites that expose the functionality of Password Manager to end users.

NOTE: It is recommended not to install Password Manager on the machine where Domain Controller (DC) server is installed.

Required

Licensing

The Password Manager license specifies the maximum number of user accounts in the Password Manager across all domains. The Admin can identify whether the installation is legally compliant or not by running the User Status Statistics (USS) tasks, where the scheduler counts the actual number of user accounts, and compares it with the maximum number specified by the license. If a deviation occurs between the actual licenses purchased and the number of users using it, the status of the license changes accordingly in the Admin site indicating whether the installation is compliant or not.

To view the compliance statuses of the license

  1. Login to the Admin site.
  2. On the left pane, click Licensing. The Licenses page appears.
  3. Click the Licenses tab and view the Compliant column.

In the Licenses page, you can view the licensing information of both Password Manager and Telephone Verification, if needed.

The table below provides more information on various compliant status.

If the total number of users exceeds the purchased license or if the license expires

In the event of a license violation, you have the following options

  • Exclude the additional number of user accounts from the user accounts managed by Password Manager to bring your license count in line with the licensed value and run the User Status Statistics(USS) scheduled task in the Administration site to recalculate and display the new user counts.
  • Remove one or more managed AD LDS instances to decrease the number of managed user accounts.
  • Purchase a new license with a greater number of user accounts, and then update your license using the instructions provided later in this section.

Note that the following items are not limited by the license

  • The number of computers connected to the Administration, Self-Service, and Helpdesk sites of Password Manager.
  • The number of Password Manager instances in a large enterprise, Password Manager can be installed on multiple computers for enhanced performance and fault tolerance.

Installing the License

The license is initially installed when you install the Password Manager:

  1. In the Installation Wizard, click Licenses to display the License status dialog box.
  2. Click Browse license, locate and open your license key file using the Select License File dialog box, and then click Close.

Some license types may include counters for managed persons and managed external persons along with a counter for user accounts. Managed persons are users that have several accounts; for example, one managed person can have three user accounts. Managed external persons are external or temporary employees. The same license violation policy is applied to managed persons and managed external persons as to user accounts. To specify these user groups, use the corresponding license scopes after you install Password Manager.

Note, that such scopes are available only if your license includes managed persons and managed external persons.
