Server Meta Configuration
By default, ClearBox loads its configuration from XML file
edited with Configurator. This approach works well for
installations with a relatively small number of realms, remote
RADIUS servers, etc...
When used in large environments (in a wholesale ISP, for
instance), the number of such objects may increase dramatically,
and managing them with Configurator may become complicated. Another
case is a demand for remote configuration managing.
ClearBox Enterprise Server offers the new feature called 'Meta
configuration'. It makes ClearBox load its configuration settings
from any supported data source,
while only this data source configuration is stored in the XML
One has to input configuration details data manually in the meta
data source. Configurator only lets you browse the result.
Switching to meta configuration mode:
- Set up a necessary database.
- Run metaconfig.sql from the ClearBox package
to create necessary tables (it's in MS SQL server dialect, while
other database engines may require manual editing).
- Input necessary data into the tables. See meta database schema for its
- In Configurator configure the
meta data source.
- Preview your meta configuration in Configurator. If it's loaded
with no error messages, save changes to the configuration.
