Manage the Registry Name Service

To manage service groups, the user must select the primary registry server on which the service groups reside, and then choose the service group to manage the hosts joined to that group and their roles within. Hosts can be filtered by Hostname and IP Address.

For more information on the registry name service (RNS), please see the Privilege Management for Unix and Linux Administration Guide.

To manage service groups, navigate to Hosts > Registry Name Service. Membership can be managed on the Service Group page with options to add, promote, and remove hosts.

The following Service Group Categories are available:

  • Registry
  • Policy
  • Sudo
  • File Integrity Monitoring
  • Privilege Management for Networks
  • Log
  • Log Archive

Manage Registry Name Service Groups

RNS groups allow clients to discover the services provided by RNS. To manage RNS groups, select Registry from the Service Group Categories list and choose a service group entry.

Add a Server

To add an available host to the service group:

  1. On the Service Group page, click Add Servers.
  2. In the Add Servers list, select Add to add a host to the service group.

Promote a Server

To promote a secondary RNS server in the service group, click Promote. The server's role will be set as a Primary RNS server and the previous primary will be set to the Secondary role.

Remove a Server

To remove a server from the service group, select Remove on a server entry and confirm by clicking OK.

A Primary RNS server must be demoted to a Secondary role before it can be removed.
