In a clustered environment, each node has a unique run.properties file. Because changes to the run.properties file can significantly impact performance, use an identical run.properties configuration on all engine nodes.

Note:

Changes made to the run.properties file will take effect after the PingAccess service is restarted on the given node.

Tip:

When storing passwords in run.properties, you should obfuscate them using the obfuscate.bat or obfuscate.sh utility to mask the password value. This utility is located in the <PA_HOME>/bin folder.

If you are running PingAccess in FIPS mode, all SSLSSL (Secure Sockets Layer) A protocol for authenticated and encrypted links between networked machines, typically over HTTPS. SSL was deprecated in 1999 in favor of Transport Layer Security (TLS). cipher and protocol settings in the run.properties file are ignored. See Managing Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) mode for information about the protocols and ciphers used in this mode.

Value Description
STANDALONE Use this value for a standalone (unclustered) PingAccess instance that runs both the administrative console and the engine. This is the default value.
CLUSTERED_CONSOLE Use this value for the server instance you want to use as the administrative console server.
Info: Only one engine in a cluster can run the administrative console.
CLUSTERED_CONSOLE_REPLICA Use this value for the server instance you want to use as the backup administrative console server.
CLUSTERED_ENGINE Use this value to indicate a server engine.
Note:

Define the following Engine and Admin properties depending on what operational mode an engine is using.

  • Define all Engine and Admin properties when pa.operational.mode is set to STANDALONE.
