CLM 4.0 with Active Directory 2003

Robert Thompson (31274) | asked Oct 25 '12, 1:09 p.m.
I've got CLM 3.0 currently installed and want to move to 4.0, but the system requirements state AD 2008 is required.  Can I use CLM 4.0 on a Windows Server 2008 with AD 2003?

Personally I use rtc 4.0 and ad 2003, not facing any problem, but my user/group structure is not a complex one.

If it is enterprise level usage, better to upgrade to AD 2008, so that you can get official support.

I agree with Joseph. Here is list of officially supported identity management systems for the latest CLM:

 I want to confirm this if this is correct or not, I know the identity management supported is 2008 but I want to confirm if this fully functional for CLM 4.0(CLM4.0 + 2003 AD).

I have an implementation and the only AD they have is 2003 and I really can't say to the client that they need to upgrade to 2008 AD.

If this is the case that it is not supported, is there any other way I can authenticate the users without AD?

Hi, to use non-AD users authentication,

- if the application server is Tomcat, you can use "Tomcat User database" and create users in jts admin page directly.

- if the application server is Websphere, you can use "Federated Repository" to manage users in WAS.

Please see the instruction in and also discussion in

I have the same client situation here.
Client uses AD 2003 and CLM 4.0.2. Is there any way to fetch the password from the AD 2003.

 password does not save in CLM repository.  When login, app server (either Tomcat or WAS here) connect to AD to do authentication.
