Verify authentication for an authorized user

To verify that an authorized Active Directory user can log on to a UNIX computer:

  1. Restart the computer to display a logon screen or prompt.
  2. Log on with the Active Directory user account you created for testing and provide the Active Directory password for that account.

    • The user account must have a complete UNIX profile.
    • The user account must be assigned the UNIX Login role.
    • If the user account has been configured to set a new password at the next logon, you should be prompted to change the password. In this case, you must type and confirm the new password before continuing.
  3. Log on using the UNIX login name for the user account and the Active Directory password.
  4. Type commands to check the UID and GID assignments, home directory ownership, and other information for the logged on user.
