Authentication Partitions

This section displays only when authentication partitioning is enabled.

This section displays a table of authentication partitions and allows you to create, edit, delete, and manage the partitions. The partitions you configure here control which authentication servers are used for which users.

You can expand a partition’s tree to show the servers, agents, and clients assigned to it.

Selection checkbox

Allows you to select one or more partitions and/or subpartitions in the table. Selecting the checkbox in the table heading selects all entries except the Default partition.

NameSpecifies the name of the authentication partition. Subpartitions are indicated by a Link icon in front of the name.
Parent PartitionSpecifies the parent authentication partition for subpartitions. This column is blank for parent partitions.
Domain(s)Specifies the domain(s) to which the partition or subpartition belongs. This column is blank for the Default partition.
CommentDisplays the comment included when the partition was added. The comment for the Default partition is Auto-created default partition.

The Delete icons are dimmed for the Default partition.

Add PartitionDisplays the Add an authentication partition pop-up dialog for adding an authentication partition or subpartition.
Auto AssignAssigns any unassigned LDAP servers, RADIUS servers, SSO agents, TSAs, and RADIUS accounting clients to the relevant partitions automatically, based on their IP addresses or host names.
Delete Partition(s)

Deletes the selected authentication partition(s) or subpartition(s).

You cannot delete the Default partition.

There is always one authentication partition in this table, the automatically created Default partition. You cannot delete this partition. You can, however, edit it and select servers, agents, and clients for it as well as subpartitions. If you disable authentication partitioning, all LDAP servers, SSO agents, TSAs, and RADIUS accounting clients are reassigned to the Default partition; when you re-enable authentication partitioning, you must reassign them. RADIUS servers are not affected and remain with their assigned partitions.
