Designate a Controller for the Array

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

When an Array contains multiple Online Responders, one Online Responder in the Array must be designated as the Array controller. Configuration settings on the Array controller override conflicting settings on other Online Responders in an Array.

You must have Manage Online Responder permissions on all of the Online Responders in the Array to complete this procedure. For more information about administering a public key infrastructure (PKI), see Implement Role-Based Administration.

To designate an Array controller

  1. Open the Online Responder snap-in.

  2. In the console tree, click Array Configuration Members.

  3. Select the Online Responder that you want to designate as the Array controller.

  4. In the Actions pane, click Set as Array Controller.

After the new Array controller has been selected, the revocation configuration data from this Online Responder is retrieved and compared against the configuration data for the other Online Responders that are Array members.
