The password authentication for access to the services hosted by the server can use either each services' own security settings or use the security user accounts configured for the Management Services service running on the Unified Communications Module.
The Enable referred authentication setting controls the method used.
•These settings are only accessible if logged in via referred authentication or as the local Linux root. Therefore, when disabled, the setting can only be re-enabled by logging in using the local Linux root name and password.
This is the default for new installation. When enabled, the security settings of the Management Services service running on the Unified Communications Module control access to the following other services:
•Web control menus
•Voicemail Pro admin
•one-X Portal for IP Office admin
•IP Office Web Manager
With referred authentication disabled, each service controls access using its own local account settings.
For servers upgraded from pre-IP Office Release 9.0, the default authentication used depends on the status of the web control Administrator password:
•If the Administrator password is still default, the server defaults to Enable referred authentication.
•If the Administrator password is not default, the server does not default to Enable referred authentication.
