|Applies To||RSA Product Set: SecurID|
RSA Product/Service Type: Authentication Manager
RSA Version/Condition: 8.x
|Issue||When creating a new sdconf.rec in the RSA Authentication Manager 8.x Security Console (Access > Authentication Agents > Generate Configuration File > Generate Config File > Download Now to save the AM_Config.zip), the zip file contains two files, an sdconf.rec file and a failover.dat file. |
This article explains the failover.dat file.
|Resolution||In order for the RSA Authentication Agent device to communicate with the RSA Authentication Manager server, an agent must be created in the Security Console under Access > Authentication Agents > Add New, completing the required information and saving the agent.|
Once the agent is created in Authentication Manager, you must then generate the configuration files by navigating to Access > Authentication Agents > Generate Configuration File > Generate Config File > Download Now.
The failover.dat file allows agent auto-registration to complete when the primary instance is unavailable or separated from the agent host by a firewall that uses Network Address Translation (NAT). The file includes a list of the primary and replica instances, and their alias IP addresses.
