Configuring AR System servers to use the AREA LDAP plug-in

To configure AR System servers to work with the AREA LDAP plug-in, use the EA (external authentication) tab in the AR System Administration: Server Information form. External authentication (including chaining) works only if you do the following in the EA tab:

  • Set External Authentication Server RPC Program Number to 390695
  • Select either Authenticate Unregistered Users or Cross Reference Blank Password or both.

For more information, see Configuring authentication processing.

After you configuring your AREA LDAP plug-in and your AR System server, you configure AR System to use external authentication processing. See Configuring authentication processing.

This version of the documentation is no longer supported. However, the documentation is available for your convenience. You will not be able to leave comments.

    Note that this appears to not always be the case. On our 8.1.00 ARS system running with a server group, setting External Authentication Server RPC Program Number to 390695 actually stopped the EA process. (See ISS04291140 for details.)

      Thank you for the comment, Kelly. We will confirm this behavior with the SME and update this topic, if required.
