    Domain support in connection to Attunity servers on Windows

    Attunity servers that run on Windows authenticate username and password provided by their clients using the following rule which depends on the daemon setting <security domainName='xxx' .../>:

    • (empty) - when the configured domain name is empty, only a plain user name is allowed and it is checked against the default domain on which the Attunity server is installed.
    • * - when the configured domain name is '*' the provided user name may be of the form of domain\user and it is checked against the domain name that is mentioned in the provided user name.
    • specific-name - in this case only a plain user name is allowed and it is checked only against the domain specified in the daemon configuration.


    When trying to connect to an Attunity server on Windows for which the domain name was either explicitly specified or was left as blank (default), providing a domain name as part of the user name will result in an "Unauthorized Domain" error.

    For security reasons, Attunity recommends specifying an explicit domain name to check against in the daemon configuratio (the latter option above).
