Environment

SecureLogin
SecureLogin SSO
SSO 6.1 plus FIXC0810001 or above
ADAM Installation Mode Win 32 Applications

Situation

When the ADAM instance, which is registered for SecureLogin is unavailable, SecureLogin scans the SCP list to find another ADAM instance to connect to, even if this instance is not configured with the SecureLogin production settings.

Resolution

The following registry key can be implemented to ignore the ADAM SCP list. If the SecureLogin registered ADAM instance is down and this key is defined and set to 1, then SecureLogin goes immediately offline.
HKLM\Software\Protocom\SecureLogin\IgnoreADAMSCP DWORD

If registry key is not present or set to 0, SecureLogin scans the SCP list to find another ADAM instance to connect to.

Additional Information

Root Cause

Several ADAM instances can be pointing at the same directory but only one of them contains the production SSO settings for users. The default instance for SSO is registered against SecureLogin at installation time, and all other instances are listed in the SCP object.

By default, when the ADAM instance, which is registered for SecureLogin is unavailable, SecureLogin scans the SCP list to find another ADAM instance to connect to. However, this other instance may not be configured with the SecureLogin production settings and applications. Consequently, SecureLogin should not connect to this specific instance.
