The whole workflow of Tectia Manager system tasks consist of the following parts:
An installation expert installs Tectia Manager (the server) as instructed in Chapter 2.
Tectia Manager administrator creates the host views and task-specific administrator roles in the Tectia Manager. See Chapter 8.
An installation expert installs the Management Agents on the remote hosts, together with the Initial Configuration Files (ICB) files. See Chapter 5.
The Management Agents establish the management connections to the Management Server based on information included in their ICBs.
The Management Server installs or upgrades the Tectia software on the managed hosts. See Chapter 10.
The Management Server collects all server host keys and distributes them to the managed client hosts. See Chapter 9.
Tectia Manager administrator creates and deploys configurations for the managed SSH software and for the auditing tasks. See Chapter 11.
Tectia Manager monitors the managed Tectia products and detects file changes. See Automatically Detected Changes in Managed Files.
The Management Agents send data from monitored hosts to Management Server.
Tectia Manager stores the collected information into the database.
Task-specific administrators monitor the statistics and the reports based on the collected log information.
Tectia Manager can also export the reports for post-processing in an external tool. See Exporting Information from Database.
