nevisAuth using resilient session sharing with the database appliance


The use of MySQL Cluster / NDB for nevisAuth session sharing is deprecated and not recommended.

This chapter describes how to configure session-sharing using a connection to a common MariaDB database. The setup requires access to the latest nevisAuth Reference Guide.

  1. Start the MariaDB server on the database appliance. Secure the database by changing the root password:

    systemctl start mariadb.service
  2. Create a database called "NSS" and a user "nss_appl" with the password "nss_appl". For information on how to customize these settings, see the nevisAuth Reference Guide.

    mysql -u root -p </root/tools/nevisauth/mysql-session.sql
  3. Follow the instructions in the nevisAuth Reference Guide, chapter Configuring Resilient Session Sharing with MariaDB, to complete the database setup and the nevisAuth configuration.


Do not share the same database appliance with nevisIDM.
