In macOS Server, Profile Manager and the Wiki service support Digest MD5 authentication. The Active Directory connector also supports this authentication.
In some cases, all users and the server are bound to the same Active Directory domain. If so, you don’t have to set up macOS Server to support Active Directory users.
Use these Terminal commands to set up macOS Server if:
- You authenticate with Active Directory in a multidomain environment. The server that runs the Profile Manager or Wiki service is on a different domain than the clients.
- Your Profile Manager or Wiki service authenticates with a third-party LDAP server.
These Terminal commands set the Profile Manager and Wiki services to use plain text authentication instead of digest authentication. To protect passwords that are sent over the network, turn on SSL encryption for the Profile Manager and Wiki websites.
macOS Server (including OS X Server Mavericks and later)
Use these Terminal commands:
sudo serveradmin stop wiki sudo /usr/libexec/PlistBuddy -c 'set :Auth:Authenticator plaintext' /Library/Server/Wiki/Config/collabd.plist sudo serveradmin start wiki
