Preface

The Oracle Secure Global Desktop 4.6 Administration Guide is a comprehensive guide to how to configure, administer, and troubleshoot problems with Oracle Secure Global Desktop (SGD). This document is written for SGD Administrators.

How This Book Is Organized

Chapter 1 describes how to integrate SGD into your network infrastructure and secure the network connections used by SGD.

Chapter 2 describes how users authenticate to an SGD server to log in to SGD. This chapter also covers how users authenticate to an application server to run an application.

Chapter 3 describes how you use organizational hierarchies to manage SGD users and give them access to applications.

Chapter 4 contains advice on configuring applications that users can run through SGD, and how to diagnose and fix problems with applications.

Chapter 5 describes how to enable support for peripherals and other client device features from applications displayed in SGD.

Chapter 6 describes how to install, configure, and run the SGD Client. Webtop configuration is also covered.

Chapter 7 describes how to configure and monitor SGD servers and arrays. Some system administration features of SGD, such as the Administration Console, log filters, and installation backups are also covered.

Appendix A describes global settings which apply to all SGD servers in the array, including the password cache and token cache.

Appendix B describes server settings which apply to the specified SGD server in the array.

Appendix C describes the supported object types in SGD and their attributes. Usage details for setting attributes using the Administration Console are included, along with the equivalent SGD command line.

Appendix D describes the available SGD commands. Examples are included for each command.

Appendix E contains reference information about the SGD login scripts. You can use this information to customize the standard SGD login scripts, or to develop your own login scripts.

Using UNIX Commands

This document might not contain information on basic UNIX commands and procedures such as shutting down the system, booting the system, and configuring devices. Refer to your system documentation for this information. This document does, however, contain information about specific SGD commands.
