Configure the A2A Client Multi-Home Feature

With the Credential Manager Multi-Home feature, administrators can specify alternate appliance addresses (and ports) for use in the A2A Client configuration file. When a connection to the  appliance is made, the A2A Client attempts to connect to each address in sequential order. If no attempts are successful, an error code is returned.

With the Credential Manager Multi-Home feature, administrators can specify alternate
Privileged Access Manager
appliance addresses (and ports) for use in the A2A Client configuration file. When a connection to the 
Privileged Access Manager
appliance is made, the A2A Client attempts to connect to each address in sequential order. If no attempts are successful, an error code is returned.
Before you configure the Multi-Home feature, administrators must reconfigure their DNS server entry rather than hard-code entries into the A2A Client configuration file.
Multi-Home Configuration Procedure
Follow these steps:
  1. Open the A2A Client configuration file:
    $CSPM_CLIENT_HOME/cspmclient/config/cspm_client_config.xml
    where
    $CSPM_CLIENT_HOME
    is your installation directory, for example
    /opt/cloakware
    .
  2. Enter XML entries for
    cspmserver
    and
    cspmserver_port
    as shown in the following example:
    This example specifies three pairs of entries; one pair for each the servers. The order of the entries in the file determines the connection order.
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?> <configuration> <applicationtype>cspm</applicationtype> <cacheallow>true</cacheallow> <loglevel>WARNING</loglevel> <cspmserver>cspm1.cloakware.com</cspmserver> <cspmserver_port></cspmserver_port> <cspmserver>cspm2.cloakware.com</cspmserver> <cspmserver_port></cspmserver_port> <cspmserver>cspm3.cloakware.com</cspmserver> <cspmserver_port>80</cspmserver_port> <daemonserver1_port>27088</daemonserver1_port> <daemonserver2_port>28888</daemonserver2_port> <logfile>C:\cspm\cloakware\cspmclient\log\cspm_client_log.txt</logfile> <c_logfile>C:\WINDOWS\Temp\cspm_c_client_log.txt</c_logfile> <patch> <frequency>daily</frequency> <starthour>0</starthour> <endhour>5</endhour> </patch> <operation>production</operation> </configuration>
  3. Save your changes.
