Configuring the server

The AA Configuration Wizard guides you through configuring the various services that are required to run Active Administrator. After this initial configuration, you can modify the server configuration within the Active Administrator console under the Configuration module.

If you are upgrading Active Administrator or have already run the configuration wizard, your previous settings appear on each page. You can quickly page through the wizard accepting the current settings or take the opportunity to make changes to your setup.

To configure the Active Administrator console, follow the steps in these sections:

Applying a license file

NOTE: The full and evaluation versions of Active Administrator® are identical. The license file is the sole determinant of program functionality.

During the free 30-day trial period, there is unlimited auditing of domain controllers. The Certificate Management features are not included.

The Certificate Management and Active Directory Health features each require a separate license. If you do not have a license file to apply, the module does not appear in Active Administrator. You will see the Certificate Management features listed under the Configuration module, but when you select the feature, a warning displays that a license is required.

NOTE: You also can update licenses from the Active Administrator Server Manager. From the Start menu, open AA Server Manager, and click Update License.

Creating a passphrase

A passphrase is used to control access to Active Administrator data. A passphrase is similar to a password in usage, but is generally longer for added security. Active Administrator content will be secured using the passphrase and requires the passphrase for accessing the content or for changing the passphrase.

NOTE: You can manage the passphrase from the Active Administrator Server Manager. From the Start menu, open AA Server Manager, and click Manage in the Security Manager section.
