17.2 Installing on Administrator Workstations

The following procedures apply for manual installation and are applicable to installing Novell SecureLogin on small number of workstations or notebook computers.

It is recommended that you deploy and manage Novell SecureLogin across large enterprise by using industry standard application distribution packages such as Systems Management Server (SMS), Novell ZENworks, and Microsoft IntelliMirror.

NOTE:The procedures for installing on administrator workstation and user workstations are the same.

The procedures explained in the following section uses the Microsoft Windows Vista 64-bit installer.

  1. Log in to the workstation as an administrator.

  2. Double-click Novell SecureLogin.msi located in the SecureLogin\Client\x64 directory of the Novell SecureLogin installer package. The Welcome to the Installation Wizard for Novell SecureLogin is displayed.

  3. Click Next. The License Agreement page is displayed.

  4. Accept the license agreement, then click Next.

    The Destination Folder page is displayed. By default, the program is saved in C:\Program Files\Novell\SecureLogin\.You can accept the default folder or choose to change.

    To change, click Change and navigate to your desired folder.

  5. Click Next. Select a Datastore for SecureLogin (that is, the installation environment) page is displayed.

  6. Select Microsoft ADAM.

  7. (Optional) Select Enable Group Policies.

  8. Click Next. The smart card support page is displayed.

    The ActivIdentity ActivClient card settings are used if they are detected.

    This option is based on whether you want to have Novell SecureLogin users use their smart cards to store single sign-on data to encrypt the users’ directory data through Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) tokens.

  9. (Conditional) If you want to use a smart card, select Yes >, click Next, then continue with Step 11.

    IMPORTANT:If your enterprise policy allows users log in to the workstation by using a smart card, you must select the smart card option.

  10. (Conditional) If you do not want to use a smart card, select No > , click Next, then continue with Step 17.

  11. Select a cryptographic service provider from which Novell SecureLogin requests PKI credentials through a Microsoft Crypto API.

  12. Select a PKCS#11 compatible library required for accessing the smart card, then click Next.

    This specifies the location of the cryptographic token interface installed as part of the smart card vendor’s software. These API files are used by Novell SecureLogin to communicate with the smart card.

    Manually configuring the third-party smart card PKCS library assumes a high level of understanding of the cryptographic service provider’s product.

  13. Select the features that you want to install, then click Next.

  14. Select the location where you want Novell SecureLogin to store the local cache.

  15. Click Next. The cache location folder page is displayed.

  16. (Optional) If you want to change the location of the cache folder, select In the path I specify and specify an alternative folder.

    IMPORTANT:If you selected Enable Group Policies option in Step 7, you must create or locate a unique custom folder for every user of the workstation. Include a user-specific variable such as %USERNAME% in the directory path

  17. Click Next. The installation features page is displayed.

    Select the options you want to install.

    Secure Workstation is not available in ADAM environment.

  18. Click Next. The Ready to Install the Program page is displayed.
