Configuring VMP for Active
You can use the VMP Enterprise Manager
to configure VMP
to work with an Active Directory server.
The following configuration options are available:
- You can configure the VMP Server to interact with Active Directory
using an SSL connection.
- You can allow users to log into the VMP Administrator or
VMP Web Console using their Active Directory username and password,
provided you have granted permission to these users.
If you specified an Active Directory server when installing VMP,
some of the fields described here have already been supplied.
See Editing User Information
for more information on how to edit user information to grant user access to the
or the VMP Web Console
Start the VMP Enterprise Manager application:
All Programs > VMP > VMP Enterprise Manager
Select Configuration .
The Configuration window appears.
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 vocera.com
using port 50000, specify vocera.com:50000.
If you want to use SSL with Active Directory, set the Connect to Active Directory over SSL to true.
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.
Save the configuration changes. In the confirmation dialog, click
Yes to restart the VMP Server.
Click OK to close the restart dialog and complete the
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.
