As part of product deployment, Securden offers the flexibility to deploy multiple application servers to take care of certain specific needs such as IT infrastructure spread across multiple networks.
If your IT assets/privileged accounts are distributed across multiple networks and if you want to manage all those devices using Securden, you can deploy Securden application servers in each of those networks and also associate each application server with a remote gateway.
Application servers deployment is a three-step process - first, you need to add the required application servers, then associate each application server with a remote gateway, and finally associate the IT assets in each network with the gateway.
How to Add Multiple Application Servers?
Prerequisite: Identify the Windows machine(s) in which you will be deploying the Securden Application Server(s). Typically, you would need machines with the same specifications as that of Securden installation.
Navigate to Admin >> Remote Distributors >> Application Server
Scroll down and and click the button “Create Application Server”.
Step 1: Enter details about the application server
In this step, you will simply be creating an identifier for each of the application servers (also called secondary servers) you want to add.
To enter the details,
Step 2: Deploy application server package on the designated machine
You need to deploy the zip file you have downloaded in step 1 above on the machine which has been identified for the purpose of deploying the application server.
Carry out the following steps in the machine where you have installed the application server:
Step 3: Associate application server with a remote gateway
After configuring the application server, you need to associate it with a remote gateway. This can be done from Admin >> Remote Sessions and Recordings >> Remote Gateway.
In the GUI that opens, select the required remote gateway and then select step 2 ‘Associate Application Server’ and click ‘Configure’. In that page, the list of all available application servers would be displayed. You need to select this application server and click ‘Save’.
After completing this association, you need to associate the devices and/or domains that you want to manage through this application server. Typically, this is an association between Application Servers → Remote Gateway → IT Infrastructure to be Managed. This association is to be done through step 3 in the Remote Gateway configuration page.
Once this is done, the application server would be fully ready to manage the respective network.
