Sun Java System Access Manager 7 2005Q4 Administration Guide

Active Directory

The Active Directory authentication module performs authentication in a similar manner to the LDAP module, but uses Microsoft’s Active Directory™ server (as opposed to Directory Server in LDAP authentication module). Although the LDAP authentication module can be configured for an Active Directory server, this module allows you have both LDAP and Active Directory authentication exist under the same realm.

Note –

For this release, the Active Directory authentication module only supports user authentication. Password policy is only supported in the LDAP authentication module.
