Creating and configuring an ID vault

To make an ID vault operational you must create the vault database on a server, create the vault ID file, specify at least one vault administrator, specify which user organizations trust the vault, assign password reset authority, and use policies to assign user IDs to the vault.

About this task

You can replicate the vault (add vault servers), specify forgotten password instructions, specify whether users must change passwords that have been reset, and require authorization for ID downloads from the vault.
