Web-based Administrative Client

You can use Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5.0 or later to perform remote Web-based administration of Application Center clusters. With the Web-based Administrative client, you can perform the following administrative tasks:

  • View performance, availability, and synchronization status for clusters or individual members.

  • View the event log for a cluster or individual members.

  • View, enable, and disable monitors for individual members.

The user interface for the Web-based Administrative client resembles the user interface of the Application Center snap-in. The Web site and virtual directory set up for the Web-based administrative client relies on Internet Information Services 5.0 (IIS) and Microsoft® Windows® 2000 security.

For security reasons, the Web-based Administrative client supports only a subset of the functionality provided in the Application Center snap-in. Specifically, users cannot perform the following tasks:

  • Add and remove members.

  • Set members online and offline.

  • Synchronize members.

  • Deploy content.

  • Modify cluster and member properties.
