Overview of the MCS Directory

Management & Control Services (MCS) allows you to select from a number of directory services for managing MCS users and groups. (For information on the supported directory services, see Configuring the Directory Service.)

MCS allows you to modify the users and groups that appear in the MCS Directory. For the other supported directory services, however, the user and group lists are maintained by that directory service. MCS references the user and group list provided by these directory services based on the server address you specify when configuring the directory service in MCS.

Once you have created users and groups in the MCS Directory, or configured an external directory service, you can configure security settings for the MCS users and groups. For information on MCS security settings, see Overview of MCS Security.
