AD360 Integration

AD360 contains six components, with each of them providing a rich but unique set of features. These components are:

  • ADManager Plus
  • ADAudit Plus
  • ADSelfService Plus
  • Exchange Reporter Plus
  • O365 Manager Plus
  • Recovery Manager Plus

To get a complete solution for all your Active Directory and Office 365 challenges, these six components have to be integrated into AD360. Follow the steps shown below:

Step 1: Download and Install the Components

Note: If you already have the components installed and running, you can skip this step and proceed with Step 2 (Integrate the components)

  • Download the components either from the link available under the Dashboard of each component or from the AD360 Website.
  • Install the components one-by-one by double-clicking the downloaded '.exe' files and following the install shield wizard.
  • Once the installation is complete, start the different components by double-clicking on the desktop shortcut icons of the respective components.

Step2: 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.

  • Go to Admin → Administration → AD360 Integration. You will be presented with four tabs each representing a component of AD360.
  • Click on any one of the tab (say ADManager Plus).
  • Enter the Server Name or IP and Port Number of the server from which that particular component is running.
  • 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.

  • Select the connection Protocol from the drop down menu.
  • Click Integrate Now.
  • Repeat the above 3 steps for other components as well under the respective tabs.

Domain Settings:

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.

Switch between different components of AD360:

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.

Data Synchronization Across Components

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:

Integration Settings:

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.
