Single-Sign On and activating feature (Subscription) "conflict"

Genius

Version 10.1 

 

If I left the SSO active, I can't activate the Subscription, because it won't authenticate the infodba id.

So I managed to deactivate the SSO by modifying the tc_profilevars.bat and TC was able to authenticate infodba against the DB security.

The activation completed successfully, with one problem:

 

Everytime I cycle TC, the Action Manager and the subscription services will not run due to authentication.  I have to modify the tc_profilevars.bat in order to start the services.

 

I dont' want to create an user infodba at the domain level...but the question remains, is the domain instance of infodba in order to support the Subscription in the SSO mode?

 

Does any one have the similar experience?  Thanks!

I think most folks create a tc_profilevars_nosso.bat (SSO commented out) then change the service startup scripts (TC_BIN\run_*.bat) to point to this file instead of the normal tc_profilevars.bat thereby bypassing SSO for these services.

That said, it is a good practice to use a domain level account (note: doesn't have to be infodba however it will cost you an author license if you don't use infodba), especially if you have distributed servers for your Tc environment (like remote FSC servers).

The solution that I adapted is as followed:

 

* I modified both run_actionmgrd.bat and run_subscription.bat

* Inserted set bypass_sso=Yes before the call to tc_profilevars.bat

* At the end of the file, append set bypass= at the end of the file

 

The reasoning is pretty obvious.  :)
