Site A has the CCS core components: CCS Application Server, CCS Consoles and the databases. Site A also has a CCS Manager with the roles of Load Balancer and Data Collector, collecting data from Windows targets and SQL targets.
Similarly, Site B has a CCS Manager with the role of Data Collector collecting data from Windows targets in two domains ABC.com and PQR.com, and collecting data from UNIX targets using the CCS agents, and also collecting data from Oracle targets.
To install and configure CCS
In Site A, Install the CCS Suite on Aps 1 computer. The CCS Suite consists of the CCS Application Server and the CCS Manager. If you are installing the CCS Manager along with the CCS Application Server on the same computer, this CCS Manager can act as a Load Balancer.
Create a CCS Manager certificate for each computer on which you will install the CCS Manager. Certificates are required for secured communication between the CCS Manager and the CCS Application Server.
See About using sites.
See Creating a site
Register the CCS Manager on Manager 1 computer to the Site A and the CCS Manager on Manager 2 computer to Site B. Registering the CCS Manager establishes communication with the CCS Manager and the CCS Application Server.
Assign the Load Balancer and Data Collector role to the CCS Manger in Site A and the Data Collector role to CCS Manager in Site B. The assigned role or roles control what tasks the CCS Manager performs in your CCS deployment.
If you have installed the CCS Manager along with the CCS Suite on Aps 1 computer in Step 1, assign the stand-alone CCS Manager on Manager 1 computer the role of a Data Collector.
Configure the CCS Manager in Site A to collect data from targets 1 and 2, and configure the CCS Manager in Site B to collect data from Windows targets in two domains ABC.com and PQR.com. As the CCS Manager is in the domain ABC.com, ensure that there is a domain trust relationship between domains ABC.com and PQR.com, for the CCS Manager to collect data from targets in the domain PQR.com. You can also configure the CCS Manager in Site B to collect data from Oracle platform on target 7.
You can collect raw-data using both agent-less and agent-based methods, and message based data using the agent-based method. For collecting raw-data using the agent-less method configure the CCS Managers to collect data directly from the target computers.
Raw-data based collection lets you collect asset data from your enterprise network. The collected data is then evaluated against a standard in CCS. You can collect raw-data using the agent-less method or the agent-based method.
Message based collection lets you collect and interpret asset data from your enterprise network before sending the data to CCS. The CCS Agent installed on each computer in the enterprise network performs the actual task of data collection and interpretation. The CCS Agent interprets the data against the standards or policies and presents the data to CCS in the form of messages.
If you want to collect data using the agent-based method, install and register CCS Agents on target computers. You can collect both raw-data and message based data using the CCS Agents. Registering the CCS Agent establishes communication with the CCS Agent and the CCS Manager.
Perform the following steps:
Perform one of the following steps:
If you are collecting data using the agent-less method, you can import assets from your network or you can import assets using the CSV, ODBC or LDAP data collectors. For information on importing assets or configuring the data collectors, see the Importing assets for the first time or Configuring data collectors sections in the Symantec™ Control Compliance Suite 11.0 User Guide.
If you are collecting data using the agent-based method, run the Import assets and agents job to create agent-based assets. See the Importing assets and agents section in the Symantec™ Control Compliance Suite 11.0 User Guide.

Configure routing rules. Routing rules let you define a particular site or a CCS manager to perform the tasks that are related to your assets or your agents. You can use routing rules to route CCS jobs based on your network environment or for achieving better load balancing. You can configure routing rules for assets based on IP range, Subnet, Expressions or Asset groups.
After you complete the deployment, check the health and status of all CCS components from the CCS Console. For information on checking the health and status of the CCS components, see the Refreshing health and status section in the Symantec™ Control Compliance Suite 11.0 User Guide.
