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:

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.
  1. Start the VMP Enterprise Manager application:
    All Programs > VMP > VMP Enterprise Manager
  2. Click the Configuration icon.
  3. 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.

  4. 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.
  5. Save the configuration changes. In the confirmation dialog, click Yes to restart the VMP Server.
  6. Click OK to close the restart dialog and complete the configuration.
  7. 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.
