- In the local Web Agent configuration file (typically c:\smwasasa\conf\ASAAgent-Assertion.conf ) of the eTrust SiteMinder TAI that has been configured with your server, set the EnableWebAgent parameter to YES
- Restart your HTTP and Sametime Advanced Servers.
- To test that your integration is working, enter the url for your deployment of Sametime Advanced into a browser.
Verify that eTrust SiteMinder authentication is invoked. When valid user credentials are entered, the user should be successfully logged into Sametime
Advanced. The user should not be prompted for authentication credentials by Sametime
If you are directed to the Sametime
Advanced login screen then there is a problem with the TAI configuration, and you must revisit the setup to determine the cause.
