Registering the domain

Test lab setup > Registering the domain

The next step is to register your test domain with Active Roles. This operation is also referred to as adding a managed domain.

A list of managed domains is part of Active Roles configuration. After you initially install the Administration Service, the list is empty. By registering a domain, you add a record to that list.

To register your test domain

  1. Click the console tree root.
  2. In the details pane, click the Add Domain button to start the Add Managed Domain wizard.
  3. Click Next.
  4. Type the name of your test domain, or click Browse to select the domain. Click Next.
  5. Verify that the following option is selected: The service account information the Administration Service uses to log on.
  6. Click Next.
  7. Click Finish to close the wizard.
  8. Wait while Active Roles completes the domain registration.

NOTE: You can un-register domains by deleting their registration objects from the Managed Domains container. To access that container, select the console tree root, and then, in the details pane, click Go to Managed Domains in the Domains area.

Managing users and groups

Managing users and groups

This section provides sample procedures that illustrate how to manage users and groups in Active Directory using the Active Roles console or Web Interface.

NOTE: To walk through the scenarios outlined in this chapter, you must be logged on as a user with sufficient permissions in Active Roles. For example, it would suffice if you are logged on as Active Roles Admin—a member of the Administrators group on the computer running the Administration Service. Alternatively, you might be granted full control of the organizational unit that holds your test users and groups. For information on how to specify user permissions in Active Roles, see Delegating administration later in this document.
