2.1 Driver Prerequisites

  • Identity Manager and its prerequisites, as listed in Considerations and Prerequisites for Installation in the NetIQ Identity Manager Setup Guide.

  • Windows Server 2019 (64-bit), Windows Server 2016 (64-bit), Windows Server 2012 R2 (64-bit), Windows Server 2012 (64-bit), Windows Server 2008 R2 (64-bit), or Windows Server 2008 SP2 (32-bit and 64-bit)

  • Internet Explorer 6.0 or later on the server running the Active Directory driver and on the target domain controller

  • Active Directory domain controller DNS name or IP address, depending on the authentication method

NOTE:The domain functional level for the Active Directory driver is supported on all supported Windows Server platforms.

Also, we recommend that the server hosting the Active Directory driver be a member of the Active Directory domain. This is required to provision Exchange mailboxes and synchronize passwords. If you don’t require these features, the server can be a member of any domain as long as the Simple (simple bind) authentication mode is used. To have bidirectional password synchronization, the Negotiate authentication option must be selected.

If you want to synchronize with an ADAM instance, see Section B.0, Configuring the Driver for Use with an AD LDS/ADAM Instance for more information.

If you want to synchronize Exchange accounts, see Section C.0, Provisioning Exchange Accounts.
