Configure RAS Connection Broker

To view RAS Connection Brokers installed in a Site, navigate to Infrastructure > Connection Broker.

A Site must have at least the primary Connection Broker installed, which is marked so in the Priority column. You can also add secondary agents for redundancy.

To modify the configuration of a Connection Broker, click it in the list and then click Properties in the middle pane. Click Edit and specify the following options:

  • Enable: Enables or disables the Connection Broker.

  • IP: Specifies the server IP address.

  • Alternate IPs: Specifies one or more alternate IP addresses separated by a semicolon. These addresses will be used if RAS Secure Gateways fail to connect to the RAS Connection Broker using the address specified in the IP field. This can happen, for example, if Gateways are connecting from a network which is not joined to Active Directory.

  • Standby: If selected, puts a secondary Connection Broker into a standby mode. This means that no agent will connect to this Connection Broker until another Connection Broker goes offline. This option is enabled automatically for any new secondary Connection Broker in excess of the three agents that already exist. It is not recommended to have more than three active Connection Brokers because it may degrade system performance. Using this option you can have more than three agents, but have them in standby mode until they are needed. For more information, see Add a secondary Connection Broker.

When done making the changes, click Save and then click Apply All Changes.

The ellipsis menu on the main Connection Brokers view has the following items:

  • Add: Adds a RAS Connection Broker to the Site. See the section that follows this one for the information on how to add secondary Connection Brokers.

  • Update agent: Update the agent.

  • Disable/Enable agent: Enable or disable the agent.

  • Logs: Allows to manage logging.

  • Promote to primary: Promotes a secondary Connection Broker to primary.

  • Rise priority: Rises the priority of a secondary Connection Broker (moves it up in the priority list).

  • Lower priority: Lowers the priority of a secondary Connection Broker (moves it down in the list).

  • Refresh. Refreshes the Connection Brokers list.

  • Delete. Deletes a secondary Connection Broker from the Site. To delete the current primary Connection Broker, you first need to promote a secondary Connection Broker to primary.
