If the security policy of your company requires all corporate databases to reside on a secured network, you must create Directory gateways to allow the Security Center applications located outside the secured network to log on to the system.
Before you begin
What you should know
- From the Config Tool home page, open the System task, and click the Roles view.
- Select the Directory Manager () role, and then click the Directory servers tab.
At the bottom of the server list, click
An extra column, Gateway, opens in the list.
- At the bottom of the list, click Add an item ().
- In the dialog box that opens, select the server you want to add, and click Add.
- Add more servers to the list if necessary.
Select the Gateway option on servers you want to use as
A Directory gateway must be located on the non-secured network. It does not need to access the Directory database, but it needs to connect to the main server. The following example shows a system with two Directory servers, one of which is the main server, and two Directory gateways.NOTE:
- Load balancing only occurs between servers of the same type. All Directory servers belong to one load balancing pool, and all Directory gateways belong to another. A user trying to connect to a Directory gateway will not be redirected to a Directory server, and vice versa.
- The Disaster recovery option only applies to Directory servers, not to Gateways.
- Update your license to include the servers that you have just promoted to Directory gateways.
- Click Apply.
