Security Center

You can configure federated entities like local entities using the Remote configuration task.

What you should know

  • You can only configure entities federated from remote systems running Security Center 5.8 GA and later from the Federation™ host.
  • You must have the Remote configuration privilege to use the Remote configuration task.
  • You must have Security Center Client that corresponds to the version of the remote system installed on the computer running the Remote configuration task.
  • You cannot update the software components of the federated system from the Remote configuration task.


  1. Do one of the following:
    • From the Area view task, right-click a federated entity and click Configure entity ().

      The Remote configuration task opens automatically on the configuration pages of the selected entity.

      If the Remote configuration task was connected to different federated system, you are asked if you want to save the open tasks. Click Save if you want the open tasks to be automatically loaded the next time you log on with this user.

    • From the Config Tool home page, open the Remote configuration task and select the federated Directory () you want to connect to.
    A remote Config Tool session opens inside the task workspace on the federated remote system.

    The remote Config Tool works exactly like your local Config Tool. The tasks you can open and the entities you can view and modify depend on the access rights and privileges granted to the Federation™ user on the remote system.

  2. To connect to a different remote system, click the Directory drop-down list at the top of the task workspace, and select another federated Directory ().
