Configuring Capture Agent

Capture Agent has a number of parameters you can modify. After you install the agent, each of these parameters is assigned a default value, as described in the following table:

 

Table 16: Capture Agent parameters

Parameter

Description

Default value

Maximum connection point age

Determines the period of time (in hours) during which a connection between Capture Agent and Quick Connect Service remains valid.

24 hours

Set interval between attempts to reconnect to service

Determines the time interval (in minutes) during which Capture Agent tries to reconnect to Quick Connect Service.

10 minutes

Set time period for attempts to connect to service

Determines the period of time (in days) during which Capture Agent tries to connect to Quick Connect Service to send the information about changed user passwords.

During this period Capture Agent stores the user passwords to be synchronized in an encrypted file.

7 days

Set certificate

Specifies a certificate for encrypting the password sync data transferred between Capture Agent and Quick Connect Service.

For more information, see Specifying a custom certificate for encrypting password sync traffic.

By default, a built-in certificate is used.

Connection Point 1

Define the Quick Connect Service instances to which Capture Agent provides information about changed user passwords.

If none of these parameters is set, Capture Agent looks for available instances of the Quick Connect Service in the following container:

CN=QuickConnect,CN=One Identity,CN=System,DC=<DomainName>

Connection Point 2

Connection Point 3

Connection Point 4

Connection Point 5

Connection Point 6

Connection Point 7

You can modify the default values of these parameters by using Group Policy and the Administrative Template supplied with the One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine. The next steps assume that all the domain controllers where the Capture Agent is installed are held within organizational units.

Complete these steps to modify the default Capture Agent settings:

Step 1: Create and link a Group Policy object

Create a new Group Policy object. Link the object to each organizational unit holding the domain controllers on which the Capture Agent is installed. For more information, see the documentation for your version of the Windows operating system.

Step 2: Add administrative template to Group Policy object

  1. Use Group Policy Object Editor to connect to the Group Policy object you created in step 1.
  2. In the Group Policy Object Editor console, expand the Group Policy object, and then do one of the following:
    • In Windows Server 2003 or Windows Server 2003 R2, expand the Computer Configuration node, and then select Administrative Templates.
    • In a later version of Windows Server, expand Computer Configuration, expand Policies, and then select Administrative Templates.
  3. On the Action menu, point to All Tasks, and click Add/Remove Templates.

    The Add/Remove Templates dialog box opens.

  4. In the Add/Remove Templates dialog box, click Add, and then use the Policy Templates dialog box to open the Administrative Template (CaptureAgentService.adm file) supplied with the One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine.

    The CaptureAgentService.adm file is located in <One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine installation folder>\Quick Connect Capture Agent\Administrative Templates.
