In this area of the IGEL Universal Management Suite (UMS) Administrator, you can start or stop the local UMS Server, end its update mode, and activate the Distributed UMS.

For general information on the UMS Administrator, see The IGEL UMS Administrator

Default path to the UMS Administrator:

Linux: /opt/IGEL/RemoteManager/RMAdmin.sh
Windows: C:\Program Files\IGEL\RemoteManager\rmadmin\RMAdmin.exe

The IGEL UMS Administrator application can only be started on the UMS Server.



Menu path: UMS Administrator > Distributed UMS

For additional options for starting / stopping services, see IGEL UMS HA Services and Processes.

Stop local UMS Server

Stops the UMS Server service on this machine. It can take some time till the UMS Server service is fully stopped.

Check local UMS Server

Possible states:

  • running: The local UMS Server is up and running. 
  • stopped: The local UMS Server is stopped.
  • unknown: The status of the UMS Server service is unknown, e.g. when the IGEL RMGUIServer service has just been manually stopped/started/paused via Windows Services.

Enable Distributed UMS

The standalone UMS Servers will work just as if they were installed as a High Availability environment if connected to the same external database. Messages between the UMS Servers will be transferred via database entries. For detailed information on the Distributed UMS, see Installing an IGEL UMS Server

For how to install the Distributed UMS or extend an existing standard UMS installation to the Distributed UMS, see Installing the Distributed IGEL UMS.

If you activated the Distributed UMS feature and have multiple UMS Servers, take care in case you decide to disable the feature. If the Distributed UMS feature is deactivated but more than one UMS Server is using the same database, no synchronization will be done between the UMS Servers.

If you have a UMS High Availability installation, this checkbox will be automatically activated and cannot be disabled.

Apply and restart local UMS Server

The changes under Enable Distributed UMS will be applied, and the UMS Server service on this machine will be restarted.

End update mode for local UMS Server

Use this feature if you have updated your Distributed UMS or UMS High Availability installation, but the update mode was not automatically stopped when the update procedure was complete.
