Safeguard Authentication Services stores certain preferences and settings in Active Directory. This information is used by Safeguard Authentication Services clients and management tools so that behavior remains consistent across all platforms and tools. The Preferences window allows you to configure these settings and preferences:
The Licensing section of the Preferences window in the Control Center displays a list of installed license files. You can add and remove license files at any time. The license files are stored in Active Directory and Safeguard Authentication Services Unix hosts automatically download and apply new license files from Active Directory.
Refer to About licenses for more information about licensing requirements.
To add licenses using the Control Center
- Open the Control Center and click Preferences on the left navigation pane.
- Expand the Licensing section. The list box displays all licenses currently installed in Active Directory. You can click to see the detail information for a license and copy the information, if needed.
- Under Options, select Add a license.
- Browse for one or more license files and click Open. The license appears in the list box.
If the license is not valid, a message like the following displays: Failed to add license. The license file specified is not a valid license. The license number, the product, the reason for the failure (such as not vlaid or duplicate), and the path where the license file resides is shown.
Note: Unix hosts check for new licenses when the host is joined to the domain or every 24 hours by default. This can be changed by modifying the configuration-refresh-interval setting in vas.conf.
To remove a license, select the license and click Remove license.
To restore a removed license, click Undo Remove.
Display specifiers are Active Directory objects that provide information about how other objects in the directory display in client applications.
Note: The Register Display Specifiers link only displays in the Control Center when display specifiers are not already registered with Active Directory. If the display specifiers are registered, Control Center does not display the link.
