You must configure the Firefox browser if Kerberos is configured for your deployment and you want to grant users access to the Web interface using Firefox.

About this task

  3. Double-click network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris in the Preference Name column.
  4. Enter your VMware Identity Manager URL in the text box.

    https://myconnectorhost.domain.com

  5. Click OK.
