WebSphere Issues


Configure SSO between different servers/cells

Filed under: WAS, WebSphere Portal — Ishtiaque @ 8:51 pm

Pre-request for SSO config:

1. The servers/cells use the same LDAP directory for authentication.

2. The servers/cells specify the same domain name (for example, .example.com) for all the single sign-on hosts.

3. The cells/servers time must be synchronized and they should be using same time zone.

Configure SSO:

1. Enable SSO and enter domain (e.g: .example.com) on all participating servers/cells by navigating Security > Secure administration, applications, and infrastructure > single sign-on (SSO).

2. Export the Ltpa key from the server which would be accessed 1st as base such as WebSphere Portal for Lotus Domino emails by navigating Security > Secure administration, applications, and infrastructure > Authentication mechanisms and expiration.

3. Import the LTPA key onto all other participating servers/cells such Domino.

4. Restart all participating servers including nodeagent and dmgr.
