Lotus® Connections requires a federated repositories configuration, but you can enable Lotus Connections applications to perform Single sign-on (SSO) for a standalone LDAP directory.
Before you begin
This procedure is required if you want to enable SSO between Lotus Connections and an application hosted by a version of WebSphere® Application Server that is earlier than 6.1, which is the version in which federated repositories were introduced.
Before you perform this procedure, you must configure federated repositories on Lotus Connections.
About this task
By default, applications deployed on servers within the same WebSphere Application Server cell are enabled for single-sign-on. To support this, the servers share the same set of LTPA keys and the same LDAP directory configuration. Use this configuration if you want to set up SSO between applications that use different LDAP directory configurations.
To enable SSO between Lotus Connections and a WebSphere Application Server configured for standalone LDAP, complete the following steps:
- Log in to the WebSphere Application Server Integrated Solutions Console by going to the following web address in a browser:
- Log in to the Welcome page.
- Click Security -> Global security.
- Select Federated Repositories from the Available realm definitions field, and then click Configure.
- On the Federated repositories page, add the <host_name>:<port> of the standalone LDAP server to the Realm name field.
- Click Apply, and then click Save to save this setting.
- Synchronize the nodes and then restart the servers:
- Log into the Integrated Solutions Console for the Deployment Manager.
- Expand System administration -> Nodes. Select the name of the node that you updated and click Full Resynchronize.
- Select Servers -> Clusters. Select the check box beside the cluster you want to restart and click Stop.
- Select System administration -> Node agents. Select the check boxes beside the nodes that you want to restart and click Restart.
- Stop and restart the Deployment Manager.
- Log into the Integrated Solutions Console again.
- Select Servers -> Clusters. Select the check box beside the cluster you want to restart and click Start.
