    Configuring an Infranet Controller NIS Server Instance (NSM Procedure)

    When authenticating users with a UNIX/NIS server, the Infranet Controller verifies that the username and password entered through the sign-in page corresponds to a valid user ID and password pair in the NIS server.

    To configure an NIS 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 NIS server instance.
    3. Click the Configuration tab. In the configuration tree, select Authentication > Auth Servers.
    4. Add or modify NIS server settings as specified in Table 1.
    5. Click one:
      • OK—Saves the changes.
      • Cancel—Cancels the modifications.
