1. Install IHS and Plugin using the appropriate installer.

2. Copy the web server definition file such as configureIHS.bat from /HTTPServer/Plugins/bin directory to WP or Dmgr profile  /bin directory.

3.Make sure server1/Dmgr is running.

4. Run the following command to add the IHS definition:

/configureIHS.sh -user wpsadmin -password wpsadmin -ihsAdminPassword ishadmin

5. Restart IHS and server1/Dmgr.

First you need to deploy custom login portlet onto a public page onto “vp” virtual portal. Then add the following lines in httpd.conf file and change IP as per your host:

RedirectMatch ^/wps/myportal/?$ /wps/myportal/vp
RedirectMatch ^/wps/portal/?$ /wps/portal/vp
RedirectMatch ^/$ /wps/portal/vp


Configuring WebSphere Portal v6.1 to use samAccountName as the login

Filed under: Active Directory, Security, WebSphere Portal — Ishtiaque @ 12:05 pm

I was able to resolve the issue by removing the following line from wimconfig.xml file:

<config:loginProperties>cn</config:loginProperties> OR <config:loginProperties>uid</config:loginProperties>

But note that you need to map sAMAccountName in AD with uid in WP.
