Setting up a Sample Domain
Step 1: Install Reflection X Advantage
For this evaluation, you'll use two computers.
- Computer 1: For this evaluation, Computer 1 is both the domain controller and the administrator's workstation. Install the complete set of Reflection X Advantage features on this computer. If you’ve done the previous exercises, this computer is already configured.
Make a note of the name (or IP address) of this computer; this is your Reflection X domain name.
- Computer 2: This is the user workstation. Install X Manager for Domains on this computer. (This feature is not installed by default.) If you already installed X Manager on a second computer to test session sharing, you can modify that installation to include X Manager for Domains.
Note: On all Windows systems, check to be sure you have included the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) feature when you select features to install.
Step 2: Identify user accounts
If you're testing in a Windows domain, we recommend that you evaluate using Windows user accounts. Valid Windows accounts can authenticate to the Reflection X Advantage domain using Windows credentials. To evaluate using this authentication option, you'll want to have access to two different Windows accounts, as follows:
- Domain administrator account: You can use your own Windows credentials to serve as the administrator account.
- Domain user account: For the sample user account, create a test user account in your Windows domain (or obtain the credentials of another user in your domain).
Note: If you don't have access to two different Windows domain accounts, see Using Reflection X Internal Authentication. This procedure describes how to add and authenticate users using the Reflection X Internal Authentication option.
Step 3: Configure your firewall
If you are running a firewall, configure it for the ports used by Reflection X Advantage. For details, open the Reflection X Advantage Help and search on "firewall" in the Search tab.
