Specifying the Default Realm
If you specify more than one authentication realm, you must designate one as the default. To authenticate a
user, the appliance must know which realm the user belongs to. If only one realm is enabled, the appliance
automatically uses it. If multiple realms are enabled, the appliance needs to know which one to use. A user can
select the appropriate one from a list, but the process is easier for the user if you designate a default realm in
AMC. (Even if you configure only one realm, you should specify it as the default; otherwise AMC displays the
There is no default realm selected, on the Realms page.)
To specify a default realm
In the AMC, navigate to User Access > Realms.
In the Default realm list (at the bottom of the AMC page), select the authentication realm that will be the default.
This list shows only those realms that are enabled and configured to be displayed.
