Safeguard Authentication Services 4.1.5 - Evaluation Guide

One Identity Privileged Access Suite for Unix Introducing One Identity Authentication Services Installing and configuring Authentication Services Getting started with Authentication Services

Setup Management Console for Unix

The first time you launch the mangement console, the Setup Management Console for Unix wizard leads you through some post-installation configuration steps. Choose one of these options:

  • Skip the Active Directory configuration, I'll do that later from the console

    This option allows you to use the core features of the console and limits access to the console to the default supervisor account only.

  • Walk me through the configuration steps for using AD user accounts for logon to the console

    When you configure the console for Active Directory, you unlock additional Active Directory features.

    Note: To use the mangement console with Authentication Services, or to use roles to allow access to the console using Active Directory, you must configure the console for Active Directory log on.

Choose an option and click Next.

Note: If you choose the Skip option, the Identify Console dialog displays. (For more information, see Identify Console.)

If you choose the Walk me through option, it allows you to configure the console for Active Directory log on. (See Configure the Console for Active Directory on the mangement console online Help for details.)

Note: If you can not configure the console for Active Directory during your initial installation of Management Console for Unix, choose the Skip option. After the installation, log into the console as supervisor and configure the console for Active Directory from System Settings. (See Active Directory Configuration in the mangement console online Help for more information.)

Configure the console for Active Directory logon

The Setup Management Console for Unix wizard opens the Configure Console for Active Directory Logon dialog when you choose the Walk me through the configuration steps for using AD user accounts for logon to the console option.

To configure the mangement console for Active Directory logon

  1. On the Configure console for Active Directory Logon dialog, enter a valid Active Directory domain in the forest, in the form example.com.
  2. Enter the credentials for an Active Directory account that has log-on rights.

    Enter a sAMAccountName, which uses the default domain or a User Principal Name, as in username@domain. The wizard uses these credentials to configure the mangement console for use with Active Directory.

    Note: This is a read-only operation; no changes are made to Active Directory.

  3. Click Connect to Active Directory.
  4. When you see the message that indicates the console connected to Active Directory successfully, click Next.

    The Set up console access by role dialog opens.

Setup console access by role

After you Configure Console for Active Directory Logon, the setup wizard displays the Set up console access by role dialog.

To add Active Directory users or groups to the console access list

  1. On the Set up console access by role dialog, click Add to specify the Active Directory users and groups that you want to have access to the features available in Management Console for Unix.
  2. On the Select Users and Groups dialog, use the search controls to find and select Active Directory user(s) or group(s). Select one or more objects from the list and click OK.

    The mangement console adds the selected object(s) to the list on the Set up console access by role dialog.

    By default the mangement console assigns users to All Roles, which gives those accounts permissions to access and perform all tasks within the console. (See Console Roles and Permissions System Settings in the mangement console online Help for details.)

  3. Click in the Roles cell to activate a drop-down menu from which you can choose a role for the user account.

    Note: During the initial set up, you can only assign one role per user. Add additional roles to a user in System Settings. (See Add (or Remove) Role Members in the mangement console online Help for details.)

  4. Click Next to save your selections.

    The Identify Console dialog opens.

Identify Console

The setup wizard displays the Identify Console dialog during the post-installation configuration steps. The Control Center uses this information to identify this mangement console. Hosts configured for automatic profiling pr automatic QAS agent status also use this information to contact the mangement console server.

To identify the mangement console

  1. On the Identify Console dialog, modify the information about this mangement console, if necessary, and click Next to open the Set supervisor password dialog.

    Note: You can modify these settings from Settings | System settings | General | Console Information. (See Console Information Settings in the consoles online Help for details.)
