Configuring Access to the Active Directory Through the Web Server

In this access model, the host requests authentication services through a web server. For example, an instance of a Web Console or Compliance Search may need to authenticate a user through its configured web server. Then, the Web Server contacts the configured CommServe host.

Before You Begin


  1. From the CommCell Browser, expand Client Computers, and then click client > Properties.
  2. Click Advanced.
  3. Click the Additional Settings tab, then click Add.
  4. In Name, type sEnableADRoutingViaTppm, then press TAB.
  5. Confirm that the Category (DM2WebSearchServer) and Type (String) fields have automatically populated. If not, enter those values.
  6. In Value, enter True.
  7. Verify that Enable is selected, and then click OK repeatedly until all dialogs are closed.
  8. Log on to the Web Server host as an administrator, open the command prompt, and enter iisreset. Note that executing this command restarts the web server software (IIS).
