Follow instructions in this article which will explain the settings that can be configured from this section.
It is important to configure and setup the automatic backup of the vSEC:CMS application database. By default, the automatic backup feature will be enabled. The backup database file is encrypted. It is recommended to never disable this feature as should the vSEC:CMS application become unusable and the backup feature is disabled then it will not be possible to recover registered user smart cards managed by the vSEC:CMS.
For the vSEC:CMS, the service is performing the copy when the backup is performed. You can change the location that the backup database file is copied to by manually entering the location or clicking the Browse button. For the vSEC:CMS make sure that the service can copy to the new destination folder. It is possible to validate that the backup is performed by clicking the Backup Now button from the Schedule dialog.
It is possible to configure the vSEC:CMS application to perform scheduled backups by clicking the Schedule button and configuring the frequency, day and time.
The Run as option allows the vSEC:CMS application to perform database backup using a different user account. Enable the Run Task As using different credentials checkbox and enter the Windows user account details that you wish the backup database operation to run under. The Windows account name should be the Windows sAMAccountName. This account needs to have permissions to access to the dat folder of the vSEC:CMS. If a user logs onto their PC with a different user account the backup database operation will be performed using the user account configured here.
Important: It is strongly recommended to change the location of the backup database file so that the backup database file is copied to a location that is securely backed up and is added to your organizations IT daily backup processes. By default the backup is written to C:\Program Files (x86)\Versasec\vSEC_CMS vSEC:CMS\dat, if the default location is selected as part of the installation. It is important that only the Service has permissions to enter and/or access the dat folder. By default, the vSEC:CMS installation sets the permission on this folder to System and it is recommended to not change this.
Configure Action - Certificates/Keys Settings
It is possible to configure the vSEC:CMS such that it will be possible to configure a card template to issue certificate(s) without the vSEC:CMS actually managing the administration PIN of the smart card. Therefore, an operator can issue a smart card token with certificate(s) but it will not manage the smart card token PIN. This can be performed from Actions - Certificate(s)/Keys.
Select Enable card template based actions to enable this feature. Enable the Allow actions on unregistered cards and click the Configure button to select which card template(s) this feature should be allowed to be used on.
