Adding an installation

Although a single installation is the most common deployment scenario, you can configure multiple installations. For example, you can use separate installations to provide concurrent production and test-bed deployments or to support multiple administrative domains within your organization.

To create a new installation:

  1. Open Audit Manager.
  2. Select the root node, right-click, then select New Installation.
  3. Follow the prompts displayed.

    The steps are the same as the first installation. For more information, see Creating a new installation.

  4. Choose the appropriate installation for each collector using the Collector Configuration wizard.

  5. Choose the appropriate installation for each agent using the Agent Configuration wizard.

Once you have multiple installations, you can choose which one each collector is part of using the Collector Configuration wizard. You can choose which installation each agent is part of using the Agent Configuration wizard. You can also configure collectors and agents using group policy.

Note:   Agents can communicate with a collector only if the agents and collector are in the same Active Directory forest.
