In this lab you have gone through the process of deploying VMware Identity Manager on-premise. This deployment followed a standard architecture in which the different components of VMware Identity Manager are installed on separate dedicated servers. This architecture was composed of the main VMware Identity Manager service running non-domain joined Windows server, and the vIDM Connector and SQL database running on dedicated, domain-joined Windows servers.

After successful installation of the different components, VMware Identity Manager was integrated to an on-premises Active Directory server for both user sync and authentication. Where authentication was tested through both LDAP and Kerberos protocols.
