Safeguard Authentication Services 4.1.5 - ActiveRoles Integration Pack Release Notes

Unix-Enable a User

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

To Unix-enable a user

  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 user 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 UID Number is the unique identifier for a Unix user. Ideally, each Windows user is assigned a unique UID number. By default the Integration Pack generates a unique ID automatically. If you change the User ID, the Integration Pack checks to ensure the specified value is unique among Unix-enabled users.

    NOTE: The Primary Group box displays the Domain Name of the group corresponding to the Primary Group ID. You can click Change to browse Unix-enabled groups to find the Primary Group by name.
  7. Click Save to commit your changes.
