Adding authentication servers

You can add authentication servers and enable remote authentication on the management server to enable remote users within the authentication server to access Performance Manager.

Before you begin

About this task

If the authentication server that you are adding is part of a high-availability pair (using the same database), you can also add the partner authentication server. This enables the management server to communicate with the partner when one of the authentication servers is unreachable.

Steps

  1. Click Administration > Configure Settings.
  2. In the Configure Settings dialog box, click Management Server > Authentication.
  3. In the Authentication dialog box, in the Servers area, click Add.
  4. In the Add Authentication Server dialog box, specify either the host name or IP address of the server, and the port details.
  5. Click Save and Close.

Result

The authentication server that you added is displayed in the Servers area.

After you finish

Perform a test authentication to confirm that you are able to authenticate users in the authentication server that you added.
