Pre-stage a Computer Account

To enable the Use Single Signon option, which allows endpoint users who are included in the Active Directory to securely log into their dynamically- managed endpoints without typing in credentials, an Active Directory administrator must first pre-stage an Active Directory computer account for the RealPresenceĀ® Resource Manager system.

This procedure can be done at any time before running first time setup.

Procedure

  1. On the Active Directory system, use the Microsoft Active Directory Users and Computers MMC snap-in to create a computer account for the RealPresenceĀ® Resource Manager system.

    Create the computer account in any desired organizational unit (OU). The computer account object must have Reset Password and Write Account Restrictions permissions.

    For more information on the Active Directory Users and Computers MMC snap-in, see Microsoft Technet.

  2. From a command window on the Domain Controller, type:

    net user <computer account name>$ <Password>/domain

    Where computer account name is the name of the computer account created in step 1, Password>is the desired password, and /domain is literally /domain (i.e., do not substitute with a domain name). For more information on the net user command, see the Microsoft Knowledge Base.

    You have now created a computer account that you can use for integrated Windows authentication.
