Troubleshooting steps for SSO:

Trusted sites are the sites with which NTLM authentication can occur seamlessly. If SSO has failed, then the most probable cause is that the ADManager Plus URL isn't a part of your browser's trusted sites. Kindly add the ADManager Plus URL in the trusted sites list. Follow the steps given below:

  • Internet Explorer
  • Google Chrome
  • Mozilla Firefox
Note:
  • It is recommended that you close all browser sessions after adding the URL to the trusted sites list for the changes to take effect.
  • Google Chrome and Internet Explorer use the same internet settings. Changing the settings either in Internet Explorer or in Chrome will enable NTLM SSO in both browsers. It is again recommended to close both the browser sessions for the changes to be enabled.

Internet Explorer:

  • Open Internet Explorer and click theTools button.
  • Click Internet options.
  • In the Internet options dialog box that opens, click the Security tab, and then click a security zone (Local intranet, Trusted sites, or Restricted sites).
  • Click Sites.
  • If you are using IE 11, click on the advanced button and add the ADManager Plus site to the list of intranet site.
  • If you are using versions lower than IE 11, add the ADManager Plus site to the list of intranet sites.
  • Click Close, and then click OK.
  • Close all browser sessions and reopen your browser.

Google Chrome

  • Open Chrome and click the Customize and control Google Chrome icon (3 horizontal lines icon on the far right of the Address bar).
  • Click Settings, scroll to the bottom and click the Show advanced settings link.
  • Under the Network section click Change proxy settings.
  • In the Internet Properties dialog box that opens, navigate to the Security tab --> Local Intranet, and then click Sites.
  • Click Advanced and add the URL of ADManager Plus in the list of intranet sites.
  • Click Close, and then OK.
  • Close all browser sessions and reopen your browser.

Mozilla Firefox

  • Open Firefox web browser and type about:config in the address bar.
  • Click I'll be careful, I promise in the warning window.
  • In the Search field, type: network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris.
  • Double-click the "network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris" preference and type the URL of AD360 in the prompt box. If there are sites already listed, type a comma and then the URL of ADManager Plus. Click OK to save the changes.
