PAM Update: Added the option for Remote Worker Nodes to service multiple Master Nodes and improved performance of system export
This update adds the option for Remote Worker Nodes to service multiple Master Nodes, extended support for Windows Server 2008 access through RDP Proxy using several different brands of native RDP clients, and improved performance of system export.
Added the option for Remote Worker Nodes to service multiple Master Nodes
The update adds the option for Remote Worker Nodes to service multiple Master Nodes. This option allows organizations to architect efficient access network servicing assets hosted at the same cloud data center to independent clients.
This function is useful for an MSP providing access to assets of multiple clients hosted at the same data center to several internal or external groups managing those assets.
In this case, one single remote node cluster inside the data center will serve all groups each with the independent master nodes interested to manage these assets.
The function also provides MSP with the cost-efficient option to gradually migrate managed assets from multiple clients data centers into a hosted cloud location reusing the access infrastructure of a hosted cloud network.
Use the following configuration on the remote node to configure multiple master node connections.
Note that the index in the master node configuration allows specifying multiple connections.
Also, note that the default configuration is given by xtam.remote.* parameters are still necessary and used to designate a primary master node connection to serve as a main monitoring point for the remote node.
- xtam.remote.enabled – Flag to enable master node configuration for multi-master node deployment
- xtam.remote.url – Master node URL in multi-master node deployment
- xtam.remote.user – Master node user in multi-master node deployment
- xtam.remote.password – Master node password in multi-master node deployment
- xtam.remote.token – Master node password token in multi-master node deployment to use instead of user and password
Improved performance of system export
The update adds 10x performance improvement to the system export.
It allows system owners to schedule system export more frequently and during active hours.
