Before you begin the installation process, decide whether to install the ACC component only, or install both ACC and VMware Identity Manager Connector, according to your business needs.

Installing both components of the Enterprise Systems Connector is recommended for most Workspace ONE customers. In addition to ACC features, the full installation includes support for the following features.

  • Virtual apps and desktops in Workspace ONE

  • RSA Secure ID Authentication

  • Integrated Windows Authentication

  • Multiple, trusted or untrusted Active Directory with VMware Identity Manager

  • VMware Identity Manager with multiple directory-organization group configurations in AirWatch

  • Platform for identity-centric integration features

If you have already deployed Workspace ONE with ACC only, that model continues to be supported, but if you plan to take advantage of any of these features, installing the full Enterprise Systems Connector is recommended. Migration from ACC-only to the VMware Identity Manager Connector available in the Enterprise Systems Connector is supported. See Directory Migration from ACC to the VMware Identity Manager Connector.
