Creating administrator consoles and adding additional connectors

You use the same Centrify Management Suite installer to install the additional connectors for load balancing and failover and administrator consoles to manage users, devices and group policy objects.

About load balancing and failover

You should configure one or more connectors to provide continuous up time for Privileged Access Service services. Each connector you add is listed in Admin Portal on the Settings page in the Centrify Connector tab.

Privileged Access Service provides load balancing among all connectors with the same services installed. For example, when a request comes in, Privileged Access Service routes the request among the available connectors. If one connector becomes unavailable, the request is routed among the other available connectors providing automatic failover.

Installing additional connectors

You use the same procedure to download the installation wizard to the host computer and then run the wizard to install and register additional connectors. After you install and register the connector, it is added to the Centrify Connector page.

Note:   The host computer must be joined to the same Active Directory domain controller as the first connector in the same trust domain or forest.

Creating a Privileged Access Service administrator console

You use the same procedure to download the installation wizard to the host computer and then run the wizard. However, you do not install the connector. Instead, you install either or both of the console extensions.

Note:   The host computer must be joined to the same Active Directory domain controller as the connectors in the same trust domain or forest.
