In Our last article related to Nakivo Backup and Replication series we discussed about 

It's time to test out one of the feature that we discussed in our last posts, the feature which I will be talking about is Active Directory Integration this is one of the important feature we look forward too,when it comes to production environment, with NAKIVO Backup & Replication we can easily integrate Microsoft Active Directory and map Active Directory groups to NAKIVO Backup & Replication user roles, which will allow domain users to log in to NAKVIO Backup & Replication using their domain credentials.
When it comes to integration the steps are pretty straightforward wherein I created a test user Backup Admin in Active Directory and added this user to a group Backupusers.
Login to Nakivo backup and Replication console as an administrator and look for the options of User Accounts and edit the properties of the same.
The AD integration option is disabled by default we can enable the option by specifying domain name and the name of the group that belongs to our active directory and click test integration.
Test Integration option will ask to specify the details including domain user login and the credentials, once the test is successful we can log out as an administrator and login as the AD user.
