Joining SPS to SPP

You can join your One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions (SPS) deployment to your One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Passwords (SPP) deployment.

IMPORTANT: Joining your SPS and SPP appliances is an action that you cannot undo.

If the primary IP address of your SPS or SPP changes, you must repeat this procedure to rejoin the clusters.

Prerequisites
  • Your SPS deployment must be a SPS cluster (not a high-availability cluster, but a Central Management cluster). Even if your SPS deployment consists of a single, standalone node, you must convert it to the Central Management node of its own single-node cluster. For details, see Managing Safeguard for Privileged Sessions (SPS) clusters.

    Configuration synchronization must be enabled between the nodes of the SPS cluster. This is required so SPP entitlements work properly for each SPS node.

    NOTE:

    If you have multiple standalone SPS appliances, consider joining them to a cluster before joining SPP. In general, One Identity recommends creating a cluster if the nodes can use a common configuration, or later you might want to centrally search the data of every node. Creating a cluster from the SPS nodes after joining SPP is problematic and should be avoided.

  • You will need the primary IP address or the hostname of your SPP deployment that SPS can use to access SPP. Only IPv4 addresses are supported.

  • You will need the username and password to an SPP account that has "Appliance" and "Operations" permissions.

  • Verify that your SPS policies do not contain the safeguard_default string in their names. During the join process, SPS automatically creates and configures several policies and plugins. The name of these policies usually contains the string safeguard_default. Existing policies with such names will be overwritten.

  • The SPP and SPS nodes must be able to communicate on the tcp 8649 port. If needed, update your firewall policies.

  • During the join process, SPS must be able to access SPP using HTTPS on the tcp 443 port. This is required only once during the join process. If needed, update your firewall policies.

To join your SPS deployment to SPP

  1. (Optional) Create a configuration backup of SPS. For details, see Creating configuration backups.

  2. (Optional) Create a configuration backup of SPP. For details, see the Safeguard for Privileged Passwords Administration Guide, Backup and Retention settings.

  3. Login to the Central Management node of your SPS cluster. This node has Central Management listed in the Basic Settings > Cluster management > Roles field.

    Figure 322: Basic Settings > Cluster management — Joining SPS to SPP

  4. Navigate to Basic Settings > Cluster management > Join to SPP cluster and enter the primary IP address of SPP into the IPv4 address or hostname of SPP to join field. Only IPv4 addresses are supported.

  5. Click Join. Wait until you are redirected to SPP.

  6. Login to SPP. Wait until you are redirected to SPS.

  7. Wait until SPS creates and configures the policies and plugins required for the joint operation of SPS and SPP. This step can usually take up to a minute.

  8. You will receive a message:

    • If the join is unsuccessful, this message displays: Request failed. Check the credentials and the IP address you provided. For details on resolving errors, see SPP to SPS join issues and SPP to SPS join error resolution

    • If the join is successful, this message displays: SPS successfully joined to SPP. SPP automatically closes any open access requests.

  9. Log out from the SPS web interface.

Caution:

If the primary IP address of your SPS or SPP changes, you must repeat this procedure to rejoin the clusters.
