How do I setup NT users for auto login to the Web Console?


Locate the file C:\Program Files\NetIQ\AppManager\web\autologin.asp, and make a backup copy of the file.

Open autologin.asp in Notepad, and edit the following lines:

Name = ""                        ' User name of the SQL Server 
                                 ' login account used to access
                                 ' the AppManager repository

Password = ""                    ' Password of the SQL Server
                                 ' login account used to access 
                                 ' the AppManager repository

Computer = "SERVER\INSTANCE"     ' Windows NT name of the server
                                 ' where the AppManager repository
                                 ' is installed

Repository = "QDB"               ' Name of the AppManager
                                 ' repository

NTAuthentication = 1 ' Set to 1 if using NT Authentication, 0 otherwise

When using NT Authentication, the Name and Password fields can be left blank.  If using SQL Authenitcation, the field must be filled in.

Save the changes to the file, and exit Notepad.


The Web Console can now be accessed using autologin, by specifying the following asp page in the URL:
