    PKI install on 8.6 BSA

    Todd McDaniel

      Guys,

       

      We are seriously looking at moving away from LDAP/AD authentication and implementing PKI for CAC authentication for less overhead to manage user accounts which are currently managed outside our group. It looks fairly straightforward in implementing the switch adding local users, building the trust store, running a few blcli commands...

       

      My question is what is the compatibility issue with 64bit windows (even up to BSA 8.8) and PKI requiring the 32bit java console? We have nearly 40 servers with the 64bit console, including 2 citrix farms and several users have it locally installed. It would take some effort to get all those servers updated with the 32bit version.

       

      Secondly, what disadvantages are there going back to a 32bit console vs a 64bit console?
