How many local user accounts can be created on ive?
Is there an automatism to push masses of users into the local user database (2000 Users)
There is a limit in the 10's of 1000's - so 2000 is not an issue
You can use XML to import your users - Maintenance / Import-Export / XML
thanx for reply.
Have there been any issues with corrupt local database in the past ?
I am frightened if the users will still be "there" when i do an upgrade of IVE system... ;-)
yeah i know about xml import.
But xml export/import does not include user passwords as i did read in knowledgebase so its useless for me. Or does it?
I think i will work with linux and radiusservice which is easy to implement and stable...
Personally I would never use the local DB for authentication for anything other than Admin users and a test user or two. I think that a Radius authentication model is much better. Did not want to "insult" you by saying that
I have not run into issues with corruption of data across upgrades - But your radius gives you more long term flexibility with role mapping, etc.....
Hi alan, my old friend! ;-)
Well, as the bookmarks are mapped to the first authentication method, and the local auth would be only second auth, i think there should be no problem with the bookmarks.
Yeah, radius is more flexible etc - but when for this "special" need the local database is "doing da job" i ask myself - why not.
I can back up them automatically via onboard archive feature to a linux server , and the login goes little bit faster as no external server has to be contacted.
I love it "simple and stupid". Complicated solutions with many dependencies make more problems...
The second auth is just needed in this special case for some kind of "pin". I would prefer to fetch that pin-value from active directory, any of not used user properties fields, but i still did not find a way to get it running.
Maybe some expert with two brains looks at my other requests here and has some idea how to use attributes in active directory in combination with radius for secondary authentication...
