Settings and Configuration

The Settings menu is used to consolidate Global and Administrative configuration options to be implemented and maintained by System Administrators.

Application Nodes

Provides an overview of all found nodes within the system configuration. Use the appropriate Edit button to modify an individual node’s configuration.

A link to the API Documentation is also available on this page.

Proximity Groups

Proximity Groups are used for system configurations that include multiple Session Manager components. A Proximity Group is used to define which Session Manager is to be used when brokering connections for remote Sessions.

Use the Add Group button to add additional Proximity Groups and configure as required.

When Proximity Groups are added their connection status will be shown as a specific font color in the Servers column of the list.

  • Green indicates the service is online and secured.

  • Blue indicates the service is online and insecure.

  • Grey with strikethrough indicates the service is not online.

    Use the Edit button next to each Proximity Group to update its configuration.

    For more information about multiple or isolated Session Manager deployments, please read our FAQ Article Deployment Architecture to Scale Session Manager (https://www.xtontech.com/blog/session-manager-scale-architecture/).

Database

The Database page shows your current database connection information as well as a listing of all exported database volumes.

Use the options Export Encrypted or Export Decrypted to generate an on-demand system export with or without encryption.

Use the Import button next to the appropriate export to import that volume into the system.

 

CAUTION:  A database import will remove all current objects, settings and configurations from the system and replace it with those from the imported volume only.  This action cannot be undone.

Registration

Enter your system Activation code here to register the software or to update your current key.

Once the code has been entered in the Activation code field, click the Automatic Registration button and when the Status indicates License is Valid, click the Save License button to complete the activation process.

If your system cannot communicate with XTAM’s activation server, then use the Manual Registration button and follow the onscreen steps to complete the activation process.

Parameters

The Parameters page provides several options that can be used to configure the system.  Use the Help button () available for each parameter for a brief description of its function and usage.

After any parameter is updated, be sure to click its Save button to save the change.

Mail Server

The Mail Server page is used to configure and test your Email Server integration.  Mail server integration is required to send email notifications and scheduled reports to users with a defined email address in their account profile.

AD

The AD page is used to configure and test your Active Directory integration.  Enter your Active Directory connection parameters and account that will be used by the system to create an integration point.

The account provided will be used to execute AD queries, read AD group membership, read AD user profiles and to reset passwords when using the Active Directory User record type.

Syslog

The Syslog page is used to configure your syslog output so that XTAM’s audit events can be sent to your external SIEM or Syslog product.
