Operations Console connecting to RMS via cname or A record

    Question

  • Anyone aware of any issues of establishing connection to the RMS server using a cname or A-record different than the RMS Server name?  Also is this officially supported?

    I need to deploy the Operations Console to clients and the organization's best practice is to NOT use server names.  Also it is likely the management group will change in the near future.

    I successfully connected to an alias name by adding an entry in my hosts file and it connected without issues.

  • It's the configuration that I'm using for all the consoles and connectors. It's working well since the beginning, and in case of RMS failover, you just have to update your dns record.

  • The SDK client (which the console uses) relies on DNS to find the RMS.

  • Hi,

     

    Regarding deploying agents, I would like to share the following with you for your reference:

     

    MOMAgent.msi command examples

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee424297.aspx

     

    Use the Command Line to Deploy Agents

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc950511.aspx

     

    In the documents above, we can see the MANAGEMENT_SERVER_DNS or MANAGEMENT_SERVER_AD_NAME is required.

     

    Hope this helps.

     

    Thanks.
