If you configured the VCS cluster to use VCS User Privileges instead of SPAS, set up authentication for the Administration Console by performing the following procedures in the order shown.
Add the Vault Service account to the VCS cluster
Install the SPAS client on the Enterprise Vault server computer on which you run the Enterprise Vault Administration Console.
To add the Vault Service account to the VCS cluster
Open a Command Prompt window on any of the VCS cluster nodes, and navigate to the following location:
Enter the following command to place the cluster in read-write mode:
Enter the following command to add the Vault Service account.
hauser -add Vault_Service_account -priv Administrator
where Vault_Service_account is the Vault Service account. Enter the account in the format accountname, for example vaultadmin. When hauser prompts you for the account password, enter the Vault Service account password.
If the authentication fails, try repeating the command with the account in the format firstname.lastname@example.org, for example email@example.com.
Enter the following command to verify that the Vault Service account has been added to the VCS user list as an administrator:
hauser -display Vault_Service_account
The output should be as follows:
Vault_Service_account : ClusterAdministrator
Save the cluster configuration:
haconf -dump -makero
To install the SPAS client on the Administration Console server
Obtain the SPAS binaries. These binaries are included in the Symantec_Product_Authentication_Service folder of the VCS media kit. If you cannot locate the SPAS binaries, contact Symantec support.
The version of the SPAS binaries that you install on the Enterprise Vault server must be the same as the version that is installed on the VCS cluster nodes.
Run the SPAS installer on the Enterprise Vault server computer on which you run the Enterprise Vault Administration Console.
Select the Typical installation option, which installs the client feature only.
For detailed information on how to set up SPAS, consult Symantec Product Authentication Services QuickStart.
