Authentication Servers

The Authentication Servers application enables you to create, modify, and delete authentication servers in OmniVista Cirrus. An authentication server could be an LDAP or RADIUS Server. Any authentication server that you want to use, other than the default OmniVista LDAP Server or the default UPAM RADIUS Server, must be added to OmniVista. Adding a server to OmniVista basically informs OmniVista that the server exists. OmniVista does not search the network to locate available authentication servers, so any server that you add to OmniVista should actually exist (or should exist in the near future). When you add a server, you can also specify other information such as:

  • Operating parameters for devices that will use the server for authentication, such as the number of retries the device will attempt while communicating with the server.

  • The user name and password used to login to the server (if applicable).

  • The location of the server to be used as a "backup" server if the added server becomes unavailable.

To access the Authentication Servers application, navigate to Network Access > Auth Servers under the “Configure” section of the OmniVista Cirrus Menu, then select one of the following Authentication Servers:

  • RADIUS Servers - Displays information about all RADIUS Servers known to OmniVista Cirrus. You can also use this screen to add, edit, and delete RADIUS Servers.

  • LDAP Servers - Displays information about all Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Servers known to OmniVista Cirrus. You can also use this screen to add, edit, and delete LDAP Servers.
