If you need to scale down or restructure your RSA SecurID Access deployment, you can remove one or more identity routers. To remove an identity router from the deployment, you must delete the identity router record from the Cloud Administration Console, and then uninstall the identity router virtual appliance.
Note: Deleting identity routers can prevent users from authenticating through RSA SecurID Access. Do so only when directed by RSA Customer Support.
- The Cloud Authentication Service can no longer communicate with the associated identity router virtual appliance to monitor status, publish configuration settings, or provide updates.
- The identity router can no longer connect the Cloud Authentication Service to any configured enterprise resources, such as LDAP directory servers and RSA Authentication Manager.
Deleting the records for an identity router prevents the associated virtual appliance from functioning, but does not uninstall the virtual appliance itself. You must manually uninstall each identity router virtual appliance after you delete the associated records from the administration consoles.
Before you begin
You must be a Super Admin to in the Cloud Administration Console.
- If a load balancer directs traffic to the identity router, remove the identity router from the load balancer configuration.
- If a monitoring service reports the status of the identity router, remove the identity router from the monitoring service configuration.
- Do the following to delete the identity router record from the Cloud Administration Console:
The Cloud Administration Console removes the deleted identity router from the status display.
- In the Cloud Administration Console, click Platform > Identity Routers.
- Select Delete from the drop-down menu to the right of the identity router.
- Click Delete to confirm deletion of the identity router.
- Click Publish Changes to apply the configuration settings to the remaining identity routers in the deployment.
- Uninstall the associated identity router virtual appliance from your environment using your VMware administration client or Hyper-V Manager.
