Changing Access Account for Domain Connections

To change domain access account

  1. On the home page of the Administration site, click the General Settings|Domain Connections tab.
  2. Select the domain connection you want to modify and click Edit.
  3. In the Edit Domain Connection dialog, select Password Manager Service account to have Password Manager access the domain using the Password Manager Service account. Otherwise, click Specified user name and password and then enter user name and password in the corresponding text boxes. Note, that the selected account should have the required permissions.
  4. Click Save. Note, that the updated settings will be applied everywhere where this domain connection is used.

Specifying Advanced Options for Domain Connection

After you have created a domain connection, you can specify advanced settings for the connection: domain controllers and Active Directory sites of the managed domain. For more information about domain controllers, see Domain Controller.

To specify domain controllers

  1. On the Administration site, click the General Settings|Domain Connections tab.
  2. On the Domain Connections page, select the domain connection for which you want to specify domain controllers and click Edit.
  3. On the Advanced settings tab of the Edit Domain Connection dialog, click Add under the domain controllers table and select required domain controllers, and click Add.
  4. Click Save. Note, that the updated settings will be applied everywhere where this domain connection is used.

Active Directory Sites

By specifying Active Directory sites in the domain connection settings you select the site in which you want Password Manager to replicate changes as soon as they occur in other sites. This can reduce downtime that users may experience when your environment has several Active Directory sites and changes may not get immediately replicated between the sites.

For example, when users unlock their accounts on the Self-Service site, this operation may occur in one site. But when they attempt to log in to their computers, this operation may occur in another site, to which the information about the unlocked account has not been replicated yet. In this case, users will not be able to log in until the information is replicated to the second site. To mitigate this issue, select the Active Directory sites in which you want to replicate changes immediately in the domain connection settings.

Note, that you cannot force replication of changes related to password policies. Such changes are replicated by Active Directory.

To specify Active Directory sites

  1. On the Administration site, click the General Settings|Domain Connections tab.
  2. On the Domain Connections page, select the domain connection for which you want to specify domain controllers and click Edit.
  3. On the Advanced Options tab of the Edit Domain Connection dialog, click Add under the Active Directory sites table, select required sites, and click Add. You can use the autofill option to automatically populate the table with all available sites from the current domain.
  4. Click Save. Note, that the updated settings will be applied everywhere where this domain connection is used.

Changes Propagation

After you specify the Active Directory sites in which you want to push changes, you can also select what kind of changes to propagate. The following options are available:

  • Propagate changes related to the user’s account in Active Directory
  • Propagate changes related to the user’s Questions and Answers profile
  • Propagate password-related changes
