    Enabling User Record Synchronization (NSM Procedure)

    The first step in enabling user record synchronization is to define the node name and the shared secret used for client/server authentication. The node name is used when associating a client with a server and is different from the logical name assigned to a server. This node name is also not the same as the cluster node name. The shared secret is the password used to authenticate the client with its servers and the primary server with its peer servers. Use the same shared secret for all clients and servers participating in user record synchronization.

    To enable user record synchronization:

    1. In the NSM navigation tree, select Device Manager > Devices. Click the Device Tree tab, and then double-click the Secure Access device for which you want to enable user record synchronization.
    2. Click the Configuration tab, and select System > Configuration > User Record Synchronization > General.
    3. Select the User Record Synchronization Enabled check box.
    4. Enter a unique node name in the Node Name box.
    5. Enter the shared secret in the Shared Secret box.
    6. Select whether this node is client only or if this node acts as both a client and server in the Node Function drop-down list.
    7. Click OK to save the changes.

    Note: If you need to make any changes in this window at a later time, you must clear the User Record Synchronization Enabled check box and click OK. Modify your entries, select the User Record Synchronization Enabled check box and save your changes. Once you enter a name and shared secret, you cannot clear these fields.
