Windows Authentication with Active Directory for SAM

This Orion Platform topic applies to the highlighted products:

DPAIMEOCETSIPAMLMNCMNPMNTASAMSRMUDTVMANVNQMWPM

The Orion Web Console can authenticate Active Directory users and users who are members of Active Directory security groups by using MSAPI or LDAP. By default, Windows individual or group accounts use MSAPI to authenticate accounts.

You can only use one authentication protocol at a time. All Windows accounts are authenticated through MSAPI or LDAP, depending on which one is enabled.

SolarWinds offers a free analyzer tool for Active Directory that provides instantaneous visibility into effective permissions and access rights. The tool provides a complete hierarchical view of the effective permissions access rights for a specific file folder (NTSF) or share drive. Download it for free from here: http://www.solarwinds.com/products/freetools/permissions_analyzer_for_active_directory/.
