|Applies To||RSA Product Set: SecurID|
RSA Product/Service Type: Authentication Manager
RSA Version/Condition: 8.1
|Issue||When creating a new sdconf.rec in the Authentication Manager 8.1 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 authentication agent device to communicate with the Authentication Manager server, an agent record must be created in the Security Console under Access > Authentication Agents > Add New then generate the configuration files (Access > Authentication Agents > Generate Configuration File > Generate Config File)|
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.
