Use of Director RRS feed

  • Question

  • I know that a director is recommended when federating/PIC to offload the authentication and provide a further security barrier.

    Is a director also needed when you have multiple EE pools? And if so, how is DNS configured?

  • A Director is recommended, but not required, when using PIC/Federation/Remote Access.  Ditto when using multiple pools.  All internal OCS servers act as a Director by default, so you can either point your SRV records towards one of your EE pools or deploy a Director (or pool of Directors) to use for the SRV record.


    This can become complex when you start designing for multi-national deployments, so it's tough to go into further detail without more information.
