AD360 contains two 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 challenges and management problems, these two 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 set up and running before proceeding with the steps given below. Also, check whether you have the appropriate versions of the components with respect to the AD360 version you are currently running.
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 the other integrated component. 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 the other component.
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 two components and AD360 by using the Apps Pane.
Once the different components of AD360 are integrated, the data related to domain settings, component integration, etc., will be automatically synchronized across the two components. This saves a lot of time for the administrators, as they no longer have to configure the same settings across the two components. Any changes they make in any one of the components will be reflected in the other component also.
The two 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 both 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 both the components.
