12.2 Authentication

You can view a device’s Authentication role properties, including its current status and the SSL port currently used for authentication; however, you cannot edit the fields on this page.

ZENworks Configuration Management lets your ZENworks administrator enable the Authentication role on a device. With this role, the device can be used as an Authentication server to help speed the authentication process by spreading the workload among various devices and by performing authentication locally to managed devices.

To view Authentication role information:

  1. Double-click the ZENworks icon icon in the notification area.

  2. In the left navigation pane, under Satellite, click Authentication.



    Current Status

    Displays whether your device is currently configured to perform Authentication operations. The current status is Active when the device is promoted to a satellite with the Authentication role.

    SSL Port

    Specifies the SSL port being used on the device for authentication purposes.
