    Scope of CPS

    interweblansing
      I am having a very hard time trying to get more information on the scope of CPS. I have talked to numerous adobe "product specialists" that can't answer any of my questions about it.
      Here are my main questions, and mabey someone can help:
      1) What is the hierarchial structure of CPS? Does it:
      a) Reside on the web server and can manage any and all domains whether they are virtual or exclusive to IPs.
      b) Attach to an IP and can manage all domains within that IP
      c) Attach to a domain and can manage only that domains scope of users.
      2) (IF A OR B IS TRUE) As an administrator can I manage all accounts on all domains with a single admin account?
      3) Does CPS override the already existing Admin management of contribute?
      4) Does CPS create keys or does that need to still be done with contribute itself?

      Thanks in advance!

          The following is based on my experience.

          1) What is the hierarchial structure of CPS? Does it:
          For our implementation CPS resides on the server that hosts our websites. We have 4 sites
          http://server.aa.com/Site1
          http://server.aa.com/Site2
          This seems to be different then the set up you are inquiring about.

          2. Each site is administered thru CONTRIBUTE.
          When setting up CPS on the server you must decide on what kind of authentication you would like to use. We use a windows domain controller. The one downside is that we have 2 separate domain controllers, and from what I know CPS only allows us to authenticate off of one domain controller..

          3) Does CPS override the already existing Admin management of contribute?
          Migrates most of the settings. You will have to add the users to the group thought. (This is done thru contribute)

          4) Does CPS create keys or does that need to still be done with contribute itself?
          Contribute still creates keys. You can send keys to your users so they can connect. If you are using a domain controller they can type connect:servername:CPSPort.aa.com and they will be prompted for there username and password.
          If they enter a correct match. There sites will appear in contribute.


          Hope this helps. I believe they have demo of CPS you can play with.
