First post here, I wish I had insight to offer but at this point I am looking for help. For starters I have just been thrown into the Windchill bandwagon and my experience is - well - limited. However, I am a network engineer so I hope I have a decent base to start with.
Here's the problem:
-The production environment AD users have smart cards and related certificates, so their user accounts don't have passwords.
-I can't seem to find a method by which to pass the logged on information to Windchill, whether it is via Single Sign On or any other method.
Here's what I have:
-Windchill 9.1 (M060) PDMLink & ProjectLink
-Apache 2.2.10 running with OpenSSL (bundled from PTC)
-Tomcat (bundled from PTC)
-Java (bundled from PTC)
-Oracle (bundled from PTC)
-Windows Server 2008 (64bit)
-Active Directory Services running on a separate Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 bit
-Network communication between the hosts are good (TCP 3268, 389, Ping, TCP 80 and TCP 443)
Here's what I have done:
-Windchill integrates with Active Directory just fine (in the development environment)
-The LDAP method relies on Basic authentication, but since we are using HTTPS, I am not concerned about the information going in clear text.
Does anyone have a setup similar to this one that can offer some insight? I would really appreciate it.
Thanks, and I am looking forward to any ideas here.
