Installation paths for the PAM Server

This section covers:

Installation procedure

The installation procedure you follow will differ depending on whether you want to implement a standalone or a cluster.

Select the appropriate heading below to follow the correct steps for your installation requirements. Once the installation steps have been completed you will have access to the Admin Interface where you can start to manage and administer your privilege access to devices.

Note

The first server deployed will automatically be recognised as the leader node whether you intend to continue as a standalone or cluster. If you are creating a cluster then the leader node will provide the cluster joining bundle to enable all subsequent servers to join the cluster as follower nodes.

Installation procedure for a standalone or leader node

The below diagram provides a high-level overview of the process for installing a standalone/leader node.

Steps for installing a standalone PAM Server

You will need to complete the following steps in order to deploy a standalone server. Click on the links in order to navigate to the relevant instructions for each step required to complete the installation and configuration.

  1. Deploying the PAM Server
    The first step will be to deploy the software package into your infrastructure.
  2. Configuration of the standalone PAM Server
    The next step will be to run through the system configuration setup.
  3. Finalise setup
    The last step required to complete the installation and to start using the PAM Server is to upload a valid licence. This is done by logging onto the Admin Interface which can be accessed through the UI.

    This completes the installation and allows you to start managing and administering your Osirum PAM.

Steps for installing your servers as a cluster

You will need to complete the following steps to deploy the servers to operate as a cluster. Click on the links in order to navigate to the relevant instructions for each step required to complete the installation, configuration and clustering.

Deploying a cluster leader node

  1. Deploying the PAM Server
    The first step will be to deploy the software package into your infrastructure.
  2. Configuration of the leader node
    The next step will be to run through the system configuration setup.
  3. Finalise setup
    The last step required to complete the installation and to start using the PAM Server is to upload a valid licence. This is done by logging onto the Admin Interface which can be accessed through the UI.

    This completes the installation and allows you to start managing and administering your Osirium PAM. You are now ready to add a follower node to your cluster.

Deploying and joining a follower node to your cluster

  1. Deploying the PAM Server
    Deploy another server software package into your infrastructure.
  2. Configuration of a cluster follower node
    The next step will be to run through the system configuration setup of the follower.
  3. Finalise setup
    The last step required to complete the installation and to start using the PAM Server is to upload a valid licence. This is done by logging onto the Admin Interface which can be accessed through the UI.
  4. Repeat the above steps for each follower node you want to add to your cluster.

Once you have finished adding your follower nodes you will need to log onto each of the servers (leader and followers) using the UI, open the Admin Interface and configure any system settings and configuration.

Note

To manage and administer your privilege access to devices you should be logged onto the Admin Interface of the cluster leader.
