15.9 Configuring Single Sign-On with Novell Access Manager

Novell Access Manager provides secure single sign-on access to your Vibe site by functioning as a reverse proxy server. Access Manager 4.5 SP1 IR1 is required for use with Vibe. You can download the required version of Access Manager from Novell Downloads.

For background information about setting up Novell Access Manager 3.1, see the Access Manager 3.1 Documentation website. For instructions specific to Vibe, see Configuring a Protected Resource for a Vibe Server in the OpenText Vibe 4.0.8 Administration Guide.

After you have configured Novell Access Manager, you must configure your Vibe site with the NAM IP address or hostname. The Access Gateway IP and logout URL should have IP or hostname of NAM. When you configure the Vibe site to use the Access Gateway, the IP addresses that you specify are the only locations from which the Vibe site accepts logins. The logout URL is the location where users find themselves when they log out of the Vibe site.

When you enable the Access Gateway for use with your Vibe site, all Vibe users must log in through the Access Gateway. It is not possible to set up the Vibe site so that some users log in through the Access Gateway and some do not.


Under Reverse Proxy Configuration, list one or more IP addresses of Access Gateway servers that have been configured for use by Vibe. List the logout URL, and if necessary, the Access Gateway hostname for WebDAV connections.

Complete the planning process for additional Advanced installation features as needed, then perform the Advanced installation as described in Section 16.0, Performing an Advanced Vibe Installation.
