Setting Up Terminal ID Manager

Before you can deploy a terminal session that uses a Terminal ID Manager connection ID, the Terminal ID Manager must be configured.

If you installed the Terminal ID Manager using the automated installer, use the configuration steps below. For a manually installed version, first install the Terminal ID Manager [manually], and then follow these steps.

The overview below gives a high-level summary of the procedure. For detailed instructions, see the topic "Setting Up Terminal ID Manager" in the Terminal ID Manager console. (On the Server Settings tab, click Help; then click the Setup Instructions link.)

  1. Open the Administrative WebStation and configure the Terminal ID Manager settings. On the Settings tab, click Terminal ID Manager and provide the necessary information.

  2. Populate the server with IDs, pools and association sets. Open the Terminal ID Manager console.

  3. After completing the step to populate the Terminal ID management database, start the Terminal ID Manager console and use the display on the Server Settings tab to confirm that the database input is valid, and that the ID Manager is available for sessions configured to use the ID Manager as the connection method.

  4. Configure sessions for your users with Terminal ID Manager as the connection method.

    If available, click Test selected attributes to test the connection and confirm that the configuration successfully assigns an ID for the session.

Use the Monitor IDs tab in the Terminal ID Manager console to review ID usage and release, reclaim, and hold IDs.
