Authenticating with Virtual DataPort

Once you have the Solution Manager Administration Tool running, you can access the tool from a browser with the URL http://acme:19090/solution-manager-web-tool. After this, you will see the login dialog.

As part of a usual installation, the Solution Manager comes along with a Virtual DataPort Server. It is used by the Solution Manager Server to resolve all the authentication requests. In fact, it cannot be used for anything else.

For a detailed explanation on how to create new users in Virtual DataPort or how to configure the authentication for a whole database with LDAP, you can check the section Administration of Databases, Users, Roles and Their Access Rights of the Virtual DataPort Administration Guide.

Note

If you want to configure Virtual DataPort so authentication relies on LDAP for every connection, take into account that the Solution Manager connects by default to database admin.
