You can authenticate to the Central Server and the remote servers using one account. The account must be added to each server as a SolarWinds DPA user, or through an Active Directory (AD) or LDAP group.

Log in with a SolarWinds DPA user

You must create the user on the Central Server and each remote server. See Create a user for more information.

The password must match on all servers.

Read-only permissions are sufficient to view data from the remote repositories.

Log in with an Active Directory or LDAP user

You must first set up AD or LDAP on the Central Server and each remote server. See User authentication options for more information.

Next, create the AD or LDAP group of the user on the Central Server and each remote server. See Create a group for more information.

Read-only permissions are sufficient to view data from the remote repositories.
