To edit the settings for an existing Director, you are presented with the following sections:

General settings

Fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the Director pool. Edit the FQDN of the server to change the value. You must have a Domain Name System (DNS) host (A) record that coincides with the new value.

In Associations you can edit or specify the following:

File share for the Director pool to use. Select an existing file share that has already been defined in Topology Builder or click New to create a new file share definition.

Important:
Before publishing the newly defined topology, the server that you specify must exist and be joined to the domain. If you created a new file share, the file share must be created on the server that you designate.

Web services

To edit or specify additional settings for the Web services on the Director pool, you modify or specify settings in the Internal Web services and External Web services.

For Internal web services you can specify the following:

If you select Override FQDN, you can specify a different FQDN for the Internal Web services identity on the pool. By default, the setting is the current pool name as defined for the Director pool.

You can specify listening and published ports for HTTP and HTTPS that your deployment requires. The default setting of port 80 for HTTP and port 443 for HTTPS are the most common settings and typically do not need to be changed unless you have specific requirements within your organization and infrastructure design.

For External web services you can specify the following:

You define the FQDN of the External Web services. The FQDN specified here will usually be defined by the requirements of your external connection requirements, such as the reverse proxy.

You can specify listening and published ports for HTTP and HTTPS that your deployment requires. The default settings of port 8080 for HTTP and port 4443 for HTTPS are defined initially. You change these settings for the listening ports based on what the requirements are for your reverse proxy and external network requirements. The published ports are set to default of port 80 for HTTP and port 443 for HTTPS. These values determine what ports the Director pool or Director server will listen for incoming requests. Typically, these do not need to be changed, unless there is conflict of port requirements on the pool. Internal and external published ports using the same port values are expected and is not a conflict.

For details about defining and configuring the settings for the Director pool, see Define the Director in the Deployment documentation.
