About this task

To disable Active Directory service for Metasys system use:

Procedure

  1. Log in to the Metasys server or SCT with a Metasys Administrator account. On the Main screen, click Tools> Administrator. The Security Administration window appears (Figure 1).
  2. In the Security Administration window, click Server Configuration > Active Directory. The Configure Active Directory dialog box appears (Figure 2).
  3. Clear the Enable Active Directory Authentication check box. This step prohibits the three Active Directory service selections from being edited.
  4. Click Save or Apply to save your changes. A dialog box appears asking you if you want to clear all service accounts (Figure 1).

  5. The following options are available:
    • Click Clear if you want to clear all service accounts and intend to permanently disable Active Directory service authentication to the Metasys system. The list of selected service accounts is deleted.
      Note: Before you disable Active Directory service authentication to the Metasys system, first remove all Active Directory service users from the Metasys system.
    • Click Keep if you want to retain all service accounts and intend to temporarily disable Active Directory service authentication to the Metasys system. The list of selected service accounts remains intact.
    • Click Cancel to do nothing and return to the previous screen.
    • Clicking Clear or Keep returns you to the Security Administration screen, which now shows the removal of the Active Directory folder and all Active Directory service users.
      Note: When you disable the Active Directory service from being used by the Metasys system, the Active Directory service users are not removed from the Security Database. If at some point you re-enable the Active Directory service for use by the Metasys system, the Active Directory service users reappear in the Active Directory service folder of the Security Administration window.
