About this release

ActiveRoles Server offers a practical approach to automated user provisioning and administration, for maximum security and efficiency. It provides total control of user provisioning and administration for Active Directory.

Authentication Services extends the capabilities of UNIX, Linux and Mac systems to seamlessly and transparently join Active Directory and integrate Unix identities with Active Directory Windows accounts.

Through the Authentication Services ActiveRoles Integration Pack, ActiveRoles Server extends management control to Unix and Linux identities such as Unix-enabled users and groups. Query-based management views show all of the identities, business rules ensure and enforce appropriate administrative practices, permission templates make it easy to delegate identity management.

For more information about this Authentication Services ActiveRoles Integration Pack, refer to the Authentication Services ActiveRoles Integration Pack Administration Guide included with the release package.

From the Start menu, navigate to All Programs | Quest Software | Authentication Services ActiveRoles Integration | ActiveRoles Integration Configuration Wizard to start the wizard which will help you configure web sites including newly created web sites for the ActiveRoles Server web interface.

    NOTE: Every time you create and configure a new web site for the ActiveRoles Server Web Interface, you must run the ActiveRoles Integration Configuration Wizard.

Upgrading the Integration Pack

The Integration pack is not meant to be upgraded. Each version of the Integration Pack installs its policy objects, access templates, scripts and managed units into a version-specific container to isolate the data objects for each version. However, the Integration Pack shares Web interface modifications between all versions. For this reason, One Identity recommends that you uninstall the previous version before installing the new version.

When upgrading from one version of the Integration Pack to another, any customizations to Integration Pack data objects will be lost. To preserve Integration Pack customizations, One Identity recommends that you backup the modified objects before you uninstall the previous version. That is, copy or move the Access Templates, Policy Objects, Script Modules, or Virtual Attributes created by the old version of the Authentication Services Support Pack for ActiveRoles Server Web Interface to a new location using ActiveRoles Server management console. These objects are located in the ActiveRoles Server configuration container.
