How Security Controls Manages Multiple Administrators

Security Controls contains a number of built-in checks to guard against simultaneous and conflicting commands from different administrators. For example:

  • The program will not allow duplicate group names or template names.
  • The program will not allow simultaneous updates to any groups, templates, distribution servers, or agent policies by different administrators. If this situation should occur the second administrator will receive a warning message.
  • Only one console will be authorized to use the Database Maintenance tool. If an administrator at another console wants to perform maintenance on the database, that administrator must take ownership of that task before the program will allow the administrator to continue.
