Creating and Configuring a Domain

You create a domain to group EcoStruxure BMS servers, users, and user groups in one domain so that all users and user groups of the domain have access to all EcoStruxure BMS servers within the domain. You can connect the domain to a Windows Active Directory domain to make user accounts from the Windows Active Directory accessible to the EcoStruxure Building Operation software, and to allow users to log on to WorkStation with their Windows user account. You cannot directly add a SmartX server to a domain in an Enterprise Central.

    Do not name an EcoStruxure Building Operation domain with the same name as any Windows domain in your network. An EcoStruxure Building Operation domain and a Windows domain in your network that are named in the same way can cause conflicts when you use an integrated Windows log on for the EcoStruxure Building Operation domains.

  7. Click Next .

  8. In the Authentication page, in the Windows domain name box, type the name of a Windows Active Directory domain to connect the domain to a Windows domain.

    • The Domain Members page appears only if there are any EcoStruxure BMS servers available to connect to the domain.

    • You cannot directly add a SmartX server to a domain in an Enterprise Central, you need to add an Enterprise Server to the domain first.

  11. Click the Add button .

  12. Click Next .

  13. In the Domain Policies page, in the Maximum logon attempts box, enter the number of failed logon attempts allowed for users belonging to the domain before their user accounts are temporarily disabled.
