Authorization Domains

We are installing SAS on two computers. One computer holds the meta data server and is in the DefaultAuth Authorization Domain.

The username/password for the second server application is in a LinuxAuth domain.

I've been looking through the 5-6 manuals on the subject, but I can find any place where the Autorization Domain is tied to a specific application server. I was expecting to see an application server tied to an autorization domain. Currently it looks like EG is authorizing against the host rather than the Authorization Domain.

Re: Authorization Domains

I asked someone about this, and here is the information they provided:

You must set the authentication domain on the individual servers and spawners using the SAS Management Console Server Manager plug-in. For example, for a Workspace server, navigate to:

SASApp > SASApp Logical Workspace Server > SASApp - Workspace Server

In the right-hand pane, right-click on the connection and then select Properties. On the Options tab you will see a selection box for the authentication domain. The process is similar for a Stored Process server, but you will need to set the authentication domain for the connection and any load-balanced connections.

For the object spawner, select the spawner in the Server Manager plug-in, right-click on the operator connection, and then select Properties. The authentication domain can be set on the Options tab. Repeat the process for the port bank connections.
