Configuring an Infranet Controller Active Directory or NT Domain Server Instance (NSM Procedure)

The Infranet Controller supports Windows NT authentication and Active Directory using NTLM or Kerberos authentication. When authenticating users with an NT Primary Domain Controller (PDC) or Active Directory, users sign into the Infranet Controller using the same username and password they use to access their Windows desktops.

To configure an Active Directory or Windows NT domain server instance:

  1. In the NSM navigation tree, select Device Manager> Devices.
  2. Click the Device Tree tab, and then double-click the Infranet Controller for which you want to configure an Active Directory or NT domain server instance.
  3. Click the Configuration tab. In the configuration tree, select Authentication > Auth Servers.
  4. Add or modify an Active Directory or NT domain server instance as specified in Table 39.
  5. Click one:
    • OK—Saves the changes.
    • Cancel—Cancels the modifications.
