Configuring the Authentication Server (NSM Procedure)

To set up the authentication server, you must define its logical name:

To set up the authentication server:

  1. In the NSM navigation tree, select Device Manager > Devices. Click the Device Tree tab, and then double-click the Secure Access device for which you want to configure an authentication server.
  2. Click the Configuration tab, and select Authentication > Auth Servers.
  3. Click the name of the authentication server you want to assign an LAS name.

    By assigning the authentication server a logical authentication server (LAS) name, all users that authenticate using the authentication server are associated with this LAS. In this instance, we are referring to the client nodes, not the user record synchronization server nodes.

  4. Select the User Record Synchronization check box.
  5. Enter a logical name to identify this server in the Logical Auth Server Name box.

    This allows you to share user record data across authentication servers on different Secure Access gateways. By assigning an LAS name to an authentication server, you are implicitly assigning it to all users that authenticate with that authentication server. The combination of the user login name and its LAS name uniquely identifies the user record of the user across all user record synchronization servers.

  6. Click OK to save the changes.
