Adding an Active Directory authentication server.
First an authentication server for Active Directory must be configured.
Browse to the GridGuard Administration & Configuration Console (ACC). Click on 'Servers' to add a new authentication server. Then click on the 'Add a New Server' in the right side column.
Configure Active Directory
Enter an authentication server label in the Server ID. Then select the Server Type as 'LDAP'.
Enter the appropriate configuration data for your Active Directory configuration.
