Question:

If you have ALREADY registered a WAMUI with a policy server, but want to register it against other policy servers you need to run XPSRegClient on the new Policy Server with a different syntax:

 

(*Please note this requires setting up an External Administrator store first.)

Answer:

XPSRegClient client_name:passphrase –adminui [options]

·        Where ‘client_name’ can be whatever you want to call this client, and will be needed when creating the policy server connection.

·        The ‘passphrase’ can be anything you like, it will also be needed when creating the policy server connection for this client.

·        Leaving off the ‘-setup’ parameter tells the policy server that this WAM has already been registered with another policy server.

Run this command on the remote policy servers where you want to connect.   Here is an example:  XPSRegClient smui1:passphrase -adminui

If registration is successful you will now be able to connect to both policy servers from the single WAM.  You can do this by selecting the connection from the ‘Connect to server’ dropdown menu at the login screen, or from the dropdown after you have logged in:
