Configuring VMP for Active Directory

You can use the VMP Enterprise Manager to configure VMP to work with an Active Directory server.

The following configuration options are available:

If you specified an Active Directory server when installing VMP, some of the fields described here have already been supplied.

Note: See Editing User Information for more information on how to edit user information to grant user access to the VMP Administrator or the VMP Web Console.
Note: If you have previously imported users from an Active Directory server, you must supply the same server information here. See Importing Users From Active Directory for details.
  1. Start the VMP Enterprise Manager application:
    All Programs > VMP > VMP Enterprise Manager
  2. Select Configuration .

    The Configuration window appears.

  3. Scroll down to the Active Directory Server field. If this field is empty, type the domain name or the IP address of an Active Directory server.

    If your Active Directory server is not using port 389, you must specify the port number. For example, for an Active Directory server on using port 50000, specify

  4. If you want to use SSL with Active Directory, set the Connect to Active Directory over SSL to true.
  5. If you want to enable users to use their Active Directory usernames and passwords to access either the VMP Administrator or the VMP Web Console, depending on granted permissions, set Allow any Active Directory user to login (display login/password form) to true.
  6. Save the configuration changes. In the confirmation dialog, click Yes to restart the VMP Server.
  7. Click OK to close the restart dialog and complete the configuration.
  8. Close the VMP Enterprise Manager.
Note: If you have set up VMP in a clustered environment, you must repeat these instructions for each cluster node on which the VMP Server is installed. To ensure the least amount of down time, integrate the Active Directory on the standby server first, then repeat on the active server.
