Re: Problem with connecting MWG 7.x to Windows AD

I second this notion!

This is the recomended method. It is related to what is described here:

Re: Problem with connecting MWG 7.x to Windows AD

English helps, but I can google translate.

Check your DNS, make sure the MWG can forward resolve the DC's name, as well as backward:

nslookup dc.yourdomain.local

nslookup x.x.x.x (dc.yourdomain.local)

You can do this from the CLI or under Troubleshooting > Network tools.

If the MWG cannot do this, then you will have issues.

Best,

Jon

Re: Problem with connecting MWG 7.x to Windows AD

you can edit the host file of the webgateway also if you dont have the internal dns on the MWG....

Configuration->file editor->hosts to edit the webgateway host file

Re: Problem with connecting MWG 7.x to Windows AD

Had similar issues.

when I removed '-'   (dashes)  from the server name (webgateway) it worked. i.e. renamed 'wg-server-1'  to 'wgserver1' and it worked.

I had the domain and Dcs in host file

eg.

n.n.n.n   Mydomain   DC1.mydomain.com

n2.n2.n2.n2   Mydomain  DC2.mydomain.com

Also use the name of the (webgateway) server itself when registering with AD. i.e. Don't use "webgateway" in AD config when the actual server name is "Proxy1".
