When WMIDaemon is enabled, authentication takes a long time.
IWSVA has two types of authentication services that handle authentication requests in coordination with Active Directory.
- AuthDaemon: Authentication service
- WMIDaemon: Transparent authentication service
WMIDaemon attempts to acquire the user's authentication information separately from the Active Directory server as a backup for AuthDaemon.
AuthDaemon has to wait for the WMIDaemon authentication process to finish and this causes the delay in authentication.
To resolve this issue, disable WMIDaemon.
- Log on to IWSVA as root via SSH (for example with a SSH shell such as PuTTy).
Open the command line interface (CLI) .
Go to the clish privileged mode.
Disable WMIDaemon using the following command:
# configure module ldap trans_auth disable
Quit the command line interface mode.
