About Active Directory authentication

This section describes the procedures used to implement Administrator Interface (AI) authentication using Active Directory (AD) domain credentials. Users can be set up as members of specified AD domains to access the Unitrends system without being added as users in that system itself.

Note:  AD authentication is implemented at the AI and Apache component level. The Unitrends operating system is not joined to the AD domain.

The AD group to which a user belongs determines which features that user can view and utilize. Users are granted one of the following privilege levels: monitor, manage, administrator, or superuser. User actions are logged in the system and can be viewed in the Audit History report. For details, see Audit History Report.
