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.
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
Click the Configuration
If you want to use SSL with Active Directory, scroll down to the Connect to Active Directory over SSL field.
Set this value 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,
scroll down to the Allow any Active Directory user to login (display login/password form) field and set it 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.
