In this exercise, you learned how to:

  • Install and Configure the VMware Identity Manager Connector
  • Sync Users and Groups to VMware Identity Manager using the VMware Identity Manager Connector
  • Configure various Authentication Methods for the VMware Identity Manager Connector for user authentication, including Active Directory Password, Kerberos and RADIUS.

This first look into installing, configuring and managing VMware Identity Manager showcases the flexibility and customization you have for creating access policies based on the needs of your enterprise.  Your Identity Providers and Access Policies can be setup to allow your users to authenticate in ways they are familiar with, without needing to spend time re-building these authentication policies from the ground up.
