Prestage Machine Account for RealPresence Resource Manager

To enable the single sign-on option, an Active Directory administrator must first prestage an Active Directory machine account for RealPresence Resource Manager. The single sign-on allows endpoint users who are included in the Active Directory to securely log in to their dynamically managed endpoint without typing in credentials.

Procedure

  1. On the Active Directory server, go to Start > Programs > Administrative Tools > Active Directory Users and Computers to open Active Directory Users and Computers window.
  2. Select the node for your domain.
  3. Right-click the Organizational Unit (OU) folder in which to add the computer account, and select New > Computer.


  4. Enter the Computer name, and click OK.


  5. Open PowerShell/Command Prompt window, enter the following command to create password for your computer.
    net user <machine name>$ <password> /domain


    • machine name: the computer name you just configured before.
    • password: the desired temporary password to be used during integration. The RealPresence Resource Manager will change the password immediately upon successful integration.
You have configured a machine account that you can use for RealPresence Resource Manager single sign-on.
