Setting the User Authentication Type

Use the following procedure to specify the level of security that is required to access the MCS console, write (store) host access configurations on the MCS server, and access configurations stored on MCS.

This authentication is only for accessing the MCS console. MCS-compatible products may provide alternative methods for accessing authentication settings for their product-specific purposes. Setting authentication options does not automatically give specific users the right to access the MCS console. That permission is set under Rights Management.

To configure MCS user authentication
  1. In the MCS left pane, point to Services and then click Security.

  2. Under Security, click Authentication.

    The Authentication page appears in the MCS right pane.

  3. From the Authentication Type list box, select the desired level authentication for accessing the MCS console.

  4. If necessary, change the settings for the remaining options.

    For details on any of the options on this page, click Help in the upper-right corner of the page.

  5. Click Save to activate your settings.
