This product includes Management & Control Services (MCS), a Web-based server console that administrators can use to centrally manage and configure Attachmate management components, such as Synapta Services Builder. Some components do not make use of all MCS features.
The primary purposes of MCS are to provide:
Following is a list of the services that MCS provides:
Authentication Specify the level of user authentication required to access the MCS console and write data to MCS. User authentication for accessing presentations is provided separately.
Rights Management Specify which members of the directory listing can access and use the MCS console.
Directory Services Manage MCS users and groups using the internal MCS directory service, or incorporate a user and group list maintained in an external directory service.
Security Services Make use of a secure port that implements Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) 3.0 and Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.0. This includes authenticated and encrypted sessions between the server and clients.
Licensing and Metering is not used in Synapta Services Builder.
ID Management is used only by Synapta Services Builder for UTS/T27.
To get started with MCS, access the MCS console and configure your directory service, and then secure the console by setting your authentication and rights options.
