Connecting authentication and authorization servers

System Administrator Guide for VSP E990 and VSP G130, G/F350, G/F370, G/F700, G/F900

Part Number

To use an authentication server and an authorization server, you must create configuration files and configure your network. Detailed setting information is required for the authentication server and the authorization server, especially for creating a configuration file.

  • Contact your server administrator for information about the values to be written in the LDAP, RADIUS, or Kerberos configuration file. If you use LDAP servers, obtain certification for the LDAP server files.
  • Contact your network administrator for information about the network settings.
  1. Create a configuration file. The items to specify depend on the protocol you use.
  2. Log in to the SVP and store the following files in an easily accessible location.
    • Certificate (for secure communication)
    • Configuration file
  3. Open the Windows command prompt on the SVP.
  4. In the folder where the .bat file is located, execute the following command specifying the configuration file path and the certificate file path:
    C:\MAPP\wk\Supervisor\MappIniSet>MappSetExAuthConf "C:\auth\" "C:\auth\auth.cer"

    After you complete the settings and verify that you can use the authentication and authorization servers, back up the connection settings for the authentication server.

    If the authentication server and the authorization server are unusable even after you make the settings, the network or the configuration file settings might have a problem. Contact the server administrator or the network administrator.

  5. When a message appears asking if you want to delete the specified configuration file and certificate file, press y to delete the files.
    If you do not delete these files now when prompted, delete them manually.
