Using Forms-Based Authentication for the PST Enterprise Administration Website

  • Last updated on

This article refers to the Barracuda PST Enterprise version 5.2 or higher.

You can reconfigure the PST Enterprise administration website to use Windows Integrated authentication instead of forms-based authentication. The currently logged in user credentials are passed to the PST Enterprise server for authentication. To reconfigure, you must edit the file web.ini in the Local Configuration Store (LCS).

Turn on Windows Integrated Authentication

To turn on Windows Integrated authentication,

  1. On the PST Enterprise server, browse to the LCS (C:\ProgramData\Barracuda\PSTEnterprise\LocalConfigurationStore), and open web.ini in a text editor such as Notepad.
  2. Find the line: AuthenticationMode=Forms
    • If this line is not present, add this as a new line at the end of the file.
  3. Edit this line to: AuthenticationMode=Windows
  4. Save and close the file.

Revert to Forms-Based Authentication

To revert to forms-based authentication,

  1. On the PST Enterprise server, browse to the LCS (C:\ProgramData\Barracuda\PSTEnterprise\LocalConfigurationStore), and open web.ini in a text editor such as Notepad.
  2. Find the line: AuthenticationMode=Windows
  3. Edit this line to: AuthenticationMode=Forms
  4. Save and close the file.
