The Control Compliance Suite Application Server is the hub of the Control Compliance Suite. Jobs flow from the Control Compliance Suite Console to the Application Server and then to one of the Data Processing Service Load Balancers. When reports are complete, the Application Server retrieves the report from the reporting database and sends it to the console for display to the user. In addition, the Application Server manages data storage in the Control Compliance Suite directory, and manages the scheduled jobs and workflow in the production database.
When you install the Application Server, you must have local administrator-equivalent privileges. In addition, you must have the privileges to read from and write to the Microsoft SQL Servers that host the database components.
The Application Server runs as a service on the server that you specify. The Application Server appears in the Services control panel as Symantec Application Server Service. The account that you use for the Application Server must be a local administrator equivalent on the computer that hosts the service. The account can be an Active Directory domain account or a local Windows user account.
