Safeguard Authentication Services 4.1.5 - ActiveRoles Integration Pack Release Notes

Unix-Enable a Group

You can manage the Unix-specific information for a Windows user account from the ActiveRoles Server web interface.

To Unix-enable a group

  1. Click the Directory Management link on the home page of the ActiveRoles Server.
  2. From the ActiveRoles Server directory tree, navigate to Active Directory and select the Users folder under your managed domain.
  3. In the details pane, click a group name link.
  4. From the drop-down menu, select Unix Properties.
  5. On the Unix Account tab, select the Unix Enabled option.
  6. Modify any of the Unix-related properties.

    The GID Number is the unique identifier for a Unix group. Ideally, each Windows group is assigned a unique Group ID number. By default the Integration Pack generates a unique ID automatically. If you change the GID Number, the Integration Pack checks to ensure the specified value is unique among Unix-enabled groups.

  7. Click Save to commit your changes.
