Management Console for Unix allows you to centrally manage Safeguard Authentication Services agents running on Unix, Linux, and macOS systems.
With the management console you can:
You can install the management console on supported Unix, Linux, and macOS platforms. Once installed, you can access it from a browser using default port of 9443 or from the Control Center.
You can run the One IdentityManagement Console for Unixmanagement console within the Control Center or you can run it separately in a supported web browser. The management console is a separate install on Windows, Unix, Linux, or macOS that you can launch from the ISO.
Typically, you install one management console per environment to avoid redundancy. One Identity does not advise managing a Unix host by more than one management console in order to avoid redundancy and inconsistencies in stored information. If you manage the same Unix host by more than one management console, you should always re-profile that host to minimize inconsistencies that may occur between instances of the management consoles.
Install instance of Management Console for Unix
You must install an instance of Management Console for Unix in your environment in order to access the Management Console. The installation can be accessed from the Safeguard Authentication Services distribution media:

The topics in this section help you learn how to do some basic system administration tasks using the Control Center and Management Console for Unix.
Note: The exercises in this section assume that you have successfully installed Safeguard Authentication Services and Management Console for Unix and have added a host to the console and joined it to Active Directory. For more information, see Prepare Unix hosts.
This section shows you how to create the following test user and group accounts used in various examples:
One Identity recommends that you work through the topics in this section in order as a self-directed "test drive" of some of the key product features. You will learn how easy it is to manage your users and groups from the management console.
You can use the management console to remotely add a local group to the host.
Note: This topic instructs you to set up a local group by the name of "localgroup" referred to by other examples in this guide.
To add a local group to the host
Note: This task requires elevated credentials. Credential information is entered by default from the cache.
The new local group account is added to the system and management console.
Note: This topic instructs you to set up a local user by the name of "localuser" referred to by other examples in this guide.
To add a local user account
You can also the navigation buttons at the bottom of the list to find and select a group.
Note: This task requires elevated credentials. The management console enters this information by default from the cache.
The new local user account is added to the system and management console.
At this point the new local user is valid for local authentication with the password you just set.
