Deploy the RNS Group Primaries

The deployment of the Group Primaries is explained in this section. On the Hosts page, click Hosts Inventory, choose the desired host, and click on the vertical ellipsis icon to select Perform Host Actions.

Select Privilege Management for Unix & Linux.

On the expanded Perform Action card, choose Privilege Management for Unix and Linux from the list of software under Step 1: Primary Action. Click Next Step.


Select Install from the list of secondary actions.

On the Step 2: Secondary Action card, set the secondary action to Install. Click Next Step.


Select All Components from the Installation Template dropdown menu.

In the Step 3: Action Requirements card, choose an installation template. Select All Components from the Installation Template dropdown menu.

Choosing All Components installs policy, log, and client components.


For the Client Registration Server, choose the RNS Primary that was configured previously. A Primary Registry Server label and an icon are provided to help identify it. Choosing this joins this sever to the Registry Name Service (RNS) network.

In the Client Registration Profile dropdown menu, choose the rns_primaries profile. After you choose the server and click Next Step, PMUL installs and uses the profile to perform some additional steps.

PMUL copies the settings file and keys required for encrypted communications. It also automatically joins this host to the dflt_pbpolicy_service and dflt_log_service as the group primary.

When the installation is complete, verify the configuration by visiting the Hosts main page and selecting Registry Name Service. Choose your primary from the presented list. A new list of categories appears on a new page under Service Group Categories. Choose the Policy category, which lists all policy groups. Select dflt_policy_service. A list of all hosts and their roles are displayed; the host you just installed is registered here as the group primary.

This interface can be used to create new groups, add or remove hosts to existing groups, and to promote hosts in the group.
