Managing Remote Authentication Servers
The Administration > Authentication Servers page allows you to configure remote authentication settings to allow users to log in to Junos Space Network Management Platform from a remote authentication server. The Authentication Servers page includes two areas: Authentication Mode Setting and Remote Authentication Servers table.
From the Authentication Mode Setting area, you can select and save the Junos Space Network Management Platform authentication mode: local, remote, or remote-local.
From the Remote Authentication Servers table area, you can:
Create, modify, and delete remote authentication server connection settings and test the connection.
Specify the remote authentication server connection order.
To select the remote authentication mode and manage remote authentication servers:
- Select Administration > Authentication Servers.
- In the Authentication Mode Setting area, select
the authentication method you want to use.
By default, Junos Space Network Management Platform is in local authentication mode and the controls for the Remote Authentication Servers table are disabled. If you select the Use Remote Authentication check box, the Remote Authentication Only and Remote-Local Authentication options are enabled.
- Click Save to store the remote authentication mode setting you select.
- In the Remote Authentication Servers table, add a new remote authentication server by clicking the Add auth server (+ ) icon. See Creating a Remote Authentication Server.
- Modify an authentication server by doubling clicking that server row in the table. See Modifying Authentication Settings.
- Delete an authentication server by selecting a row and clicking the Delete auth server (–) icon to remove an authentication server.
- Click a row and select the arrows to move the server up
and down the list. Up arrow is disabled if the server is at the top
of the list; down arrow is disabled if the server is at the bottom
of the list.
Sorting for columns are disabled, since there is an explicit sort order as determined by the arrows.
- On selection of the server, click Test Connection to display a transient result of last connection test.
- Confirm that you want to test the server connection.
After testing, the Status dialog box appears displaying the test results: success or failure.
- Click OK.
If the connection results fails, ensure that the server settings are correct.
