How to Enable SSO

You can enable the entire Enterprise Single Sign-On (SSO) system by using either the MMC Snap-In or the command line.

After you run the enabling command, there is a short delay before all Single Sign-On Servers are enabled, as each polls the SSO database for the latest global information.

If you want to configure affiliate applications and mappings in the SSO system, you must also create an affiliate application. After an SSO affiliate administrator creates an affiliate application, an application administrator can make changes to it, and application users (end-users) can create their own mappings. For more information, see Managing Affiliate Applications and Managing User Mappings.

To enable the SSO system using the MMC Snap-In

  1. Click Start, click Programs, click Microsoft Enterprise Single Sign-On, and then click SSO Administration.

  2. In the scope pane of the ENTSSO MMC Snap-In, expand the Enterprise Single Sign-On node.

  3. Right-click System, and then click Enable.

To enable the SSO system using the command line

  1. Click Start, click run, and then type cmd.

  2. At the command line prompt, go to the Enterprise Single Sign-On installation directory. The default installation directory is <drive>:\Program Files\Common Files\Enterprise Single Sign-On.

  3. Type ssomanage –enablesso.

    noteNote
    On a system that supports User Account Control (UAC), you may need to run the tool with Administrative privileges.

To enable SSO to create affiliate applications and mappings

  1. Log on as an SSO administrator or SSO affiliate administrator to the SSO Server, or on a computer that has the SSO administration sub services of SSO.

  2. On the Start menu, click run, and then type cmd.

  3. At the command line prompt, go to the Enterprise Single Sign-On installation directory. The default installation directory is <drive>:\Program Files\Common Files\Enterprise Single Sign-On.

  4. Type ssomanage -enablesso to enable the Enterprise Single Sign-On service.

    noteNote
    On a system that supports User Account Control (UAC), you may need to run the tool with Administrative privileges.

  5. Log on as an SSO affiliate administrator.

  6. Type ssomanage -createapps <application file> to create an affiliate application, where <application file> is the XML file that contains definitions for the affiliate applications.

    noteNote
    On a system that supports User Account Control (UAC), you may need to run the tool with Administrative privileges.
