The following considerations apply to all external security managers:
When setting up security in a cluster to use an external security manager, ensure that you configure either TAM or Siteminder on each of the portal nodes.
- If you make any changes to the external security manager configuration after initially setting it up, ensure that any changes you make to the wkplc.properties file are propagated to the other nodes in the cluster. Changes to the wkplc.properties file are not included as part of the cluster resynchronization process.
- If you are using an external Web server, additional configuration is required before running any task to configure an external security manager with a WebSphere Portal cluster. Edit the wkplc.properties file on each node, and ensure that the values for the wp.ac.impl.JunctionHost and wp.ac.impl.JunctionPort properties are set to the backend server host name and port number you are using for your Web server.
