An Active Directory agent encapsulates the connection details to a single instance of Active Directory (AD), Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (ADLDS) or Active Directory Application Mode (ADAM).
Operations reliant on the Active Directory agent will not function as expected if the agent is not configured correctly. The following should be considered when configuring this agent:
- Which Authentication types are supported or required by the target Active Directory instance.
- Connection timeout limits of the target server.
- Access privileges of the user connection details.
The Active Directory agent is used by the following Operations:
- Active Directory Changes operation
- Active Directory Sync Changes operation
- Active Directory Listen operation
In addition to the common agent configuration settings shared by all agents, the Active Directory agent requires the following by way of configuration:
|Server||Hostname of the Active Directory server.|
|Username||Username to authenticate to the server with. Not required for Anonymous authentication type.|
|Password||Password to authenticate to the server with. Not required for Anonymous authentication type.|
|Authentication||The authentication method for the connection.|
Authentication selection values:
|Basic||Performs a simple bind using the provided Username and Password.|
|Secure||Uses NTLM or Kerberos to authenticate.|
|Anonymous||No authentication is performed.|
|Custom||A custom selection of potential Authentication Types.|
For custom Authentication Types, please see here for further details.
