The CCS Directory Server is the main component of Symantec Control Compliance Suite. The component comprises the Directory Support Service (DSS), the Management Services and the Certificate Management Console (CMC). The component uses the CCS directory to store the user rights and permissions, the asset information, and the jobs and schedules.
The CMC is a tool that is installed along with the CCS Directory Server component. The tool is used to create the certificates that are based on the root certificate information. The root certificate is created through the Symantec Control Compliance Suite 9.0- Reporting and Analytics Installation Wizard. You must use the CMC tool to create the certificates, which are required by the other installed components. The distributed components use the certificates to communicate with the DSS.
For a distributed setup, you must install the CCS Directory Server component first before you proceed with the installation of the other components.
