Preparing for Active Directory Authentication

This section of the Deployment Guide describes the required steps to integrate Policy Manager and Microsoft Active DirectoryMicrosoft Active Directory. The directory server that stores information about a variety of things, such as organizations, sites, systems, users, shares, and other network objects or components. It also provides authentication and authorization mechanisms, and a framework within which related services can be deployed.. For some use cases, Policy Manager is required to join the Active DirectoryMicrosoft Active Directory.

In other use cases, such as with Captive PortalA captive portal is a web page that allows the users to authenticate and sign in before connecting to a public-access network. Captive portals are typically used by business centers, airports, hotel lobbies, coffee shops, and other venues that offer free Wi-Fi hotspots for the guest users. authentication, joining Policy Manager to Active DirectoryMicrosoft Active Directory.
