The Identity Mapping feature leverages the same configuration used for managing Microsoft servers and is documented pretty well in the chapter titled "Managing Microsoft Windows Servers" in the NIOS Administrators Guide. You can find this guide through the Help panel in your Grid Manager GUI, or in the Tech Docs section on the Infoblox Support site (https://support.infoblox.com/).
Here is a snippet of the basic steps which walk through this setup:
Assigning Grid Members to Microsoft Servers To configure a Grid member to manage one or more Microsoft servers: 1. Grid: From the Grid tab -> Microsoft Servers tab -> Servers tab, click the Add icon. Standalone appliance: From the System tab -> Microsoft Servers tab -> Servers tab, click the Add icon. 2. In the Add Microsoft Server(s) wizard, complete the following: — Which features do you want to configure?: This section appears only when you have selected the Enable MS AD feature check box for mapping network users. For more information, see Enabling Identity Mapping on page 625. You can select multiple options in this section: • Network Users: Select this check box to enable the Grid member to synchronize user information with the managed Microsoft servers. • DNS and DHCP Services: Select this check box to enable the Grid member to synchronize DNS and DHCP services with the Microsoft servers. • Active Directory Sites: Select this check box to enable the Grid member to synchronize Active Directory sites. — In the General Settings section, complete the following: — Managing Member: Click Select Member and select the Grid member that manages Microsoft servers. Select None if you do not want to associate a Microsoft server with a Grid member.
Note: These steps are much easier to read in the admin guide.
