Provide client access to the ARM GUI applications
The Access Rights Manager installer includes the Access Rights Manager Rich Client and Access Rights Manager Configuration Client.
The Access Rights Manager Rich Client provides deep dive ARM administration on your system. This application is recommended for clients with administrator privileges.
The Access Rights Manager Configuration Client provides the centralized settings for all ARM clients. This application is recommended for senior level administrators to configure the ARM behavior on all desktops and systems.
To minimize the amount of maintenance required for software updates, you can install the Access Rights Manager Rich Client and Configuration client on a network share.
When you are finished, provide access to the share to all clients who use these applications. This method requires minimal administration compared to installing the applications on the client systems.
To provide client access, share the ARM directory with Read permissions. This directory is located in one of the following locations based on your deployment:
You can create shortcuts to the ARM Rich Client and Configuration Client in the bin folder, as shown below.
Sharing only the bin sub-folder will not provide user access to the user interfaces.
The following illustration provides an overview of how to provide client access using a network share.
After you create a network share, create shortcuts to the
app8Man.exe file (for Access Rights Manager Rich Client) and the
appConfig.exe file (for Access Rights Manager Configuration Client) located in the network share. When you are finished, share these shortcuts with your clients who require access to these applications.
You can install the Access Rights Manager applications on client computers or servers as required.
