AD360 contains seven components, with each of them providing a rich but unique set of features. These components are:
To get a complete solution for all your Active Directory and Office 365 challenges, these seven components have to be integrated into AD360. Follow the steps shown below:
Note: If you already have the components installed and running, you can skip this step and proceed with Step 2 (Integrate the components)
Note: Make sure that all the components are running before proceeding with the steps given below. Also, check whether you have installed the latest versions of the components.
Note: If you have enabled high availability for any of the components, then make sure that you use the virtual IP address/hostname of the component in the step above instead of the primary server's IP address.
A domain cannot be configured with the product. A domain can only be added to any of the component and the details added in one component will be synced with all other connected components. Also, if there is a change in the administrator credential that was used in configuring a domain with a component, simply update the change in any one of the component and it will be synchronized across all the other components.
Once all the components are integrated, you can switch between each component to access the full feature set that each component offers. You can easily switch between the four components by using the Jump to link provided at the top right corner of the AD360 Web Client. Simply place your mouse pointer over the 'Jump to' link and select the component.
Once the different components of AD360 are integrated, the data related to domain settings, component integration, etc., will be automatically synchronized across each component. This saves a lot of time for the administrators, as they no longer have to configure the same settings across all the four components. Any changes they make in any one of the components will be reflected in the other components also. The data relating to the following configuration settings will be automatically synchronized across all the components of AD360:
The different components of AD360 communicate with each other for various purposes like Single Sign-On, domain settings, etc. Any changes to the hostname and port number of a component must be reflected in the other components for smooth running of all the components. But with AD360, there is no need for you, the administrator, to manually make the changes in all the components. Simply update these changes in the AD360 Integration settings page and the changes will be automatically synchronized across all the components.
