This article will bring together resources / screenshots / examples on how to test and verify that password extraction has properly been configured and that the tests pass.

How to configure NMAS Authentication

  1. Review the Novell Documentation on Universal Password Retrieval here: http://www.novell.com/documentation/password_management32/pwm_administration/data/an4bun5.html (Section 3.4.2)
  2. Find detailed NMAS setup instructions here: http://www.omni-ts.com/forum/post--2169--page-1.html
  3. Use the "Allow the following to retrieve passwords" option to select administrator accounts that can be used to extract passwords.

Configure WebParts to use NMAS

In the web.config file of your SharePoint server, under the <configuration> element, add a <connectionStrings> element, with the following format:

    <add name="RivaNMAS" connectionString="host='';port='636';
         userDNAttribute='entryDN';scope='SubTree'" />

Be sure to adjust the parameters as appropriate for your system.

In particular, pay attention to these parameters:

  • host
  • port
  • distinguishedName
  • password
  • userContainer

Note: Ensure you leave the ' around each value inside the connectionString="" XML attribute
