How to Use the Servers Snap-in

This version of Enterprise Single Sign-On (SSO) includes the ENTSSO Servers Snap-In, which allows you to view, monitor, and perform certain actions on your ENTSSO Server through the Windows interface.

If your system has a firewall and your server name uses the FQDN format, you may not be able to contact the server. Instead, you must specify the NetBIOS name or the associated IP address.

  1. Open Enterprise Single Sign-On.

  2. In the Scope pane, click the Servers node.

    The following information is displayed in the Results pane.
