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
- In the Configure Console for Active Directory Logon dialog, enter a valid Active Directory domain in the forest, in the form example.com.
Enter the credentials for an Active Directory account that has logon 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.
- Click Connect to Active Directory.
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.
After you configure the 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
- In 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.
- In the Select Users and Groups dialog, use the search controls to find and select Active Directory users or groups. Select one or more objects from the list and click OK.
The mangement console adds the selected objects to the list in 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 One Identity Management Console for Unix Administration Guide for details.
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 setup, 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 One Identity Management Console for Unix Administration Guide for details.
Click Next to save your selections.
The Identify Console dialog opens.
The setup wizard displays the Identify Console dialog during the post-installation configuration steps. The Authentication ServicesControl 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
In 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 console's online help for details.
The supervisor account is the default account for accessing all features of the mangement console. The supervisor is a member of all roles and no permissions can be removed from supervisor. However, the supervisor does not have Active Directory credentials and therefore is blocked from performing Active Directory tasks.
To set the supervisor password
In the Set supervisor password dialog, enter a password for the supervisor account and click Next.
The Summary dialog displays.
- To log on using the console supervisor account, use supervisor as the user name.
Note: The supervisor is the only account that has rights to change the supervisor account password in System Settings. See Reset the Supervisor Password in the mangement console online help for details.
