Re: Passwords and IT Assistant

Unlike Openmanage Server administrator, The IT assistant package does not currently use NT authentication

Is there anyway to configure it to use NT Authentication? If not, Is there anyway to automate the addition of users each server?  I am going to have about 50-100 PE 2650 servers and I would like to add 5 authorized users for all servers.

Re: Passwords and IT Assistant

I am not sure about your setup, normally only one management station (IT assistant) need be installed per site. 
Dell Server administartor is the package that is installed on each server and this uses native operating system authentication (in your case NT authentication)
There are three levels of access user, power user and administartor

Sorry, I mean each server you add into the discovery section of IT Assistant, adds a new server to the systems tab.  If you open the server up and click on the users tab, you must enter all the users who need to configure settings of a server to each system.  I want to automate this so there is a standard 5 users/passwords who can configure the systems in IT Assistant.  Do you see what I'm saying?

Ok I see exactly what you mean, these users are used to provide SNMP set operations security so they will be independant of the operating system.

The trick would be to find a way to automate populating the fields in the database which is not something I have tried before.  More information on the database here.
