Intended Audience

This information is intended for administrators of VMware Identity Manager. The information is written for experienced Windows and Linux system administrators who are familiar with VMware technologies, particularly vCenter™, ESX™, and vSphere®, networking concepts, Active Directory servers, databases, backup and restore procedures, Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP), and NTP servers. Knowledge of other technologies, such as VMware ThinApp® and RSA SecurID, is helpful if you plan to implement those features.
