Windows Domain

Jun 06, 2013

The Configuration: Appliance Settings: Windows Domain page allows the server-side appliance to join the same Windows Domain as the servers it is accelerating, allowing encrypted MAPI and signed SMB traffic to be accelerated (providing that the client-side appliance has SSL acceleration configured to the point where a secure peer relationship exists between the client-side and server-side appliances).

Joining the domain needs to happen only once, by typing in the domain credentials. (If the domain password changes, this will have to be repeated.)

Demo Mode
In demo mode, the login credentials of a single user are used instead of the domain credentials. This allows the acceleration of outcropped MAPI and signed SMB for that user. This mode is recommended for demonstration and testing only.
