Managing Remote Server Login Mappings

Add, remove, and configure remote server login mappings.

  1. In the Administration Console, select Networks > Remote Servers.
  2. Click the Name field of the remote server, then click the drop-down arrow and select Properties > Login Mapping.
  3. In the Login Mapping window, choose how logins from a remote server are mapped to a local server.
    • None – a particular remote login is mapped to a particular local login name. For example, user joe on the remote server might be mapped to joesmith.
    • Map to local logins with the same names – all logins from one remote server can use their remote names.
    • Map all to a single local login – all logins from one remote server can be mapped to one local name. For example, all users sending remote procedure calls from the MAIN server are be mapped to remusers.
      Note: Mapping more than one remote login to a single local login reduces individual accountability on the server. Audited actions can be traced only to the local server login, not to the individual logins on the remote server.
  4. (Optional) To map a particular remote login to a specific local login name, click Add.
    1. In the Add Specific Mapping window, specify the remote login name, then select the local login name.
    2. (Optional) Click Trusted Password to indicate that the remote logins are trusted.
      Using the Trusted Password option reduces the security of your server, as the passwords are not verified.
  5. (Optional) To remove a mapping of particular remote login from a specific local login name, select the login, then click Remove.
