One Identity recommends that you install One Identity Management Console for Unix, a separate One Identity product that provides a management console that is a powerful and easy-to-use tool that dramatically simplifies deployment of Safeguard Authentication Services agents to your clients. The management console streamlines the overall management of your Unix, Linux, and macOS hosts by enabling centralized management of local Unix users and groups and providing granular reports on key data and attributes.
Prior to installing Management Console for Unix, ensure your system meets the minimum hardware and software requirements for your platform.
Can be installed on the following configurations:
The Management Console for Unix server requires Java 8 (also referred to as JRE 8, JDK 8, JRE 1.8, and JDK 1.8).

NOTE: See JVM memory tuning suggestions in the One Identity Management Console for Unix Administration Guide for information about changing the default memory allocation setting in the configuration file.
Safeguard Authentication Services must be able to communicate with Active Directory, including domain controllers, global catalogs, and DNS servers using Kerberos, LDAP, and DNS protocols. The following table summarizes the network ports that must be open and their function.
|389||Used for LDAP searches against Active Directory Domain Controllers. TCP is normally used, but UDP is used when detecting Active Directory site membership.|
|3268||Used for LDAP searches against Active Directory Global Catalogs. TCP is always used when searching against the Global Catalog.|
|88||Used for Kerberos authentication and Kerberos service ticket requests against Active Directory Domain Controllers. TCP is used by default.|
|464||Used for changing and setting passwords against Active Directory using the Kerberos change password protocol. Safeguard Authentication Services always uses TCP for password operations.|
|53||Used for DNS. Since Safeguard Authentication Services uses DNS to locate domain controllers, DNS servers used by the Unix hosts must serve Active Directory DNS SRV records. Both UDP and TCP are used.|
|123||UDP only. Used for time-synchronization with Active Directory.|
|445||CIFS port used to enable the client to retrieve configured group policy.|
Note: Safeguard Authentication Services, by default, operates as a client, initiating connections. It does not require any firewall exceptions for incoming traffic.
To extend the authentication, authorization, and administration infrastructure of Active Directory to the rest of your enterprise, allowing Unix, Linux, and macOS systems to act as full citizens within Active Directory, you must install and configure Safeguard Authentication Services:
Note: For users to authenticate on Unix, Linux, and macOS hosts with Active Directory credentials, your Unix hosts must have the Safeguard Authentication Services agent installed.
In preparing for your Safeguard Authentication Services installation, One Identity recommends that you install Management Console for Unix. This provides a management console that is a powerful and easy-to-use tool that dramatically simplifies deployment, enables management of local Unix users and groups, provides granular reports on key data and attributes, and streamlines the overall management of your Unix, Linux, and macOS hosts.
You can install the management console on Windows, Unix, or Linux computers. Each hosting platform prompts for similar information.
The following install files are located on the Safeguard Authentication Services distribution media under console | server:
where "n.n" indicates the product version number.
The Management Console for Unix Administration Guide contains detailed instructions for installing the management console on all of these platforms. Use the following procedure to install the console on a supported Windows platform from the Safeguard Authentication Services 5.0.1 distribution media.
Of course, you can install Safeguard Authentication Services without using Management Console for Unix. If you wish to do that, skip these instructions and go to Installing and joining from the Unix command line.
