Main procedure

  1. Open AccessManager application on the Access Rights Server workstation,
  2. Configure AccessManager, or import an AccessManager policy,
  3. Press Exit, and then press Yes to save modifications.
  4. Open AccessManager application on the Access Rights Client workstation,
  5. Open the Network tab and enter the name of the Access Rights Server workstation,
  6. Server AccessManager policy is displayed,
  7. Press Exit, and then press Yes to save modifications.

The steps 4-7 should be repeated for each Access Rights Client (steps 1-3 must be completed once beforehand).

In case of network disconnection

When the server is disconnected, execution of authorized actions (according to the AccessManager policy defined after following steps 1-7 above) remains effective. Server AccessManager policy is recorded on the client workstations’ local registry (cache) when the server is defined in Network tab (steps 5-7), avoiding it being lost in case of network temporary unavailabilities. Then, if network disruptions appear, the client workstations use the local registry (cache) policy to control users access and lose the latest modifications.

Known issue: If Server AccessManager policy is modified after step 7, the modifications automatically apply to the clients workstations as expected, but the local cache on client workstations is not updated. When the network is back, the client workstations use the Access Rights Server policy again.

Workaround to update the local cache on client workstations after modifications are performed on Server AccessManager policy:

  1. Open AccessManager on the client workstations.
  2. Come back to a local policy by entering the local workstation’s name in the Network tab.
  3. Save the modifications.
  4. Re-open AccessManager.
  5. Add the Access Rights Server workstation’s name again in the Network tab.
  6. Save the modifications.
  7. Open AccessManager on the Access Rights Client workstation.
  8. In Network tab, remove the name of the Access Rights Server workstation.
  9. Enter the name of the local workstation and press OK.
  10. The AccessManager policy is not removed but is now managed locally.
  11. If you want to remove the AccessManager policy, you can either:

Remove AccessManager server policy from one client workstation:

  • manually uncheck all access controls in AccessManager window,
  • or delete the AccessManager key in the Registry. Contact NOTOCORD® Support to know the AccessManager registry key. This action requires local administrator permissions.
