The admin user you create when you install the Administration Console has all rights to the Access Manager components. We recommend that you protect this account by configuring the following features:
Password Restrictions: When the admin user is created, no password restrictions are set. To ensure that the password meets your minimum security requirements, you should configure the standard eDirectory™ password restrictions for this account. Go to the Administration Console and click. Browse to the admin user (found in the novell container), then click . For configuration help, use the button.
Intruder Detection: The admin user is created in the novell policy container. To modify the intruder detection policy for this container, go to the Administration Console and click> . Select then click . Click . For configuration help, use the button.
You also need to protect the Administration Console from Internet attacks. It should be installed behind your firewall.
If you install secondary consoles for redundancy, these secondary consoles should be on the same network. For a secure system, they should not be required to cross routers to communicate with each other.
Also, if you are installing the Administration Console on a separate machine, ensure that the DNS names resolve between the Identity Server and the Administration Console. This ensures that SSL security functions correctly between the Identity Server and the configuration store in the Administration Console.
