How to Set the SSO Server

Each time you use ssomanage, you must first point the user to the Single Sign-On server you want to connect to.

You can do this in one of two ways:

  • Individual users can point themselves to the correct Single Sign-On Server.

  • A local computer administrator for the Single Sign-On server can point all the members of the Single Sign-On Users account to this server.

To set the Enterprise Single Sign-On Server using the MMC Snap-In

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

  2. In the MMC Snap-In under the Console Root, right-click Enterprise Single Sign-On, and click Select.

  3. Browse to the desired server.

  4. If appropriate, select the Set SSO Server for all users check box.

  5. Click OK.

To set the Enterprise Single Sign-On Server for a single user using the command line

  1. On the Start menu, 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 –server <Single Sign-On Server>, where <Single Sign-On Server> is the computer name of the Single Sign-On Server the user wants to connect to.

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

To set the Enterprise Single Sign-On Server for all users using the command line

  1. On the Start menu, 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 –serverall <Single Sign-On Server>, where <Single Sign-On Server> is the computer name of the Single Sign-On Server all members of the Single Sign-On Users account will be pointed to.

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

To determine the Enterprise Single Sign-On Server to which a user is connected using the command line

  1. On the Start menu, 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 –showserver.

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