Chapter 6 Desktop Info Servers
Installing a Dual Server Desktop Architecture
If you specify installation of a Dual Desktop architecture, you are prompted as to whether the Info Server
that you are installing is the Master Info Server in the DSD architecture. You are also asked whether you
want to install a DSD on the current host.
You can install one or more Dual Server Desktops. You can install the DSDs on the same host that is
running the Master Info Server in the DSD configuration or you can install the DSDs on remote hosts.
You are also prompted as to whether you want to install the DSD gateway on the same host as the Master
Info Server. Normally you install the DSD gateway on the same host as the Master Info Server.
If you will run the DSD Gateway on the host where you are running the Master Info Server in the DSD
architecture, you must select the Gateways component for installation.
Desktop Info Server Configuration Considerations
When configuring a Desktop Info Server architecture:
One Info Server must be designated as the Master Info Server.
One or more Info Servers can be designated as Desktop Info Servers.
A unidirectional gateway must connect the Master Info Server with each of the Desktop Info
All users, groups, and roles must be identical in the Master Info Server and Desktop Info Server.
Configuring a DSD Architecture with SSL Enabled
You can configure a DSD architecture and also configure Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) communication
between the DSD components. However, if you are setting up a DSD architecture with SSL
communication enabled, the DSD architecture with SSL can only be configured with the following on
the same host:
Master Info Server
Desktop Info Serve
If you configure SSL with a DSD architecture, you must configure SSL to run the Certificate Authority
on the local host.
Virtual Operator, Webtop, or failover configuration will not work with SSL configured.
