High Availability (HA) Configuration

Operating Keeper SSO Connect in HA mode

Keeper SSO Connect is designed to operate in a multi-instance HA environment. Once the first instance is configured (per Windows and Linux instructions in this document) and the service is enabled to start on boot, the instance can be cloned and additional instances can be launched behind a load balancer.

Each HA instance must run the same version of SSO Connect

Windows

  1. Install Keeper SSO Connect on the new instance

  2. Login to the SSO Connect instance configuration screen and select the SSO Connection from the drop-down menu after login.

  3. Use the Windows Services screen to restart Keeper SSO Connect.

Upon startup the SSO Connect service is synchronized to this instance and will begin to process user transactions.

Linux

Use the command-line interface to initialize the instance using the following procedure: $ java -jar SSOConnect.jar -config

Enter the following when prompted:

  • Keeper Administrator email address

  • Keeper Administrator Master Password

  • Two-Factor code (if enabled on the account)

  • SSO Domain Name (this attribute is defined on the SSO Connect provisioning screen on the Keeper Admin Console)

When the configuration steps are finished, the current settings will be sync'd from the server including the SSL Cert and IDP XML file, so you don’t have to supply information for those settings. But if you are using a private IP you will have to set that up in the Configuration dialog. When asked “Do you wish to configure…”, enter Y. Hit enter to retain existing values until it prompts for the Private IP and Private Port. Enter the appropriate values.

Continue pressing Enter to accept the current settings until all prompts are answered.

Restart the service.

$ systemctl restart ssoconnect

Upon startup the SSO Connect service is synchronized to this instance and will begin to process user transactions.
