In this article, we provide a simple way to verify if your Kepion web server is joined with an on-premise active directory (Windows AD) domain or Azure active directory (Azure AD) domain.
Before you start
Confirm you have access to the Kepion web server (i.e., the machine with Kepion installed) and permission to share files.
Also, gather the following information from a valid user in your organization:
- Windows AD username (e.g., middleearthad\frodo, where middleearthad is the domain name and frodo is the username)
- Azure AD username (e.g., email@example.com)
Verify Windows AD Connection
1. Sign in to the Kepion web server and select a folder to share.
2. Right-click the folder and select Give access to > Specific people…
3. Click the drop-down icon and select Find people…
4. Enter the Windows AD username (e.g., middleearthad\frodo).
5. Click Check Names.
If the Windows AD username is resolved to a valid credential, that means the machine is joined to a Window AD domain. Below is an example of a resolved credential.
6. Click Cancel when you’re done.
If a Name Not Found window pops up, that indicates the machine isn't joined with the specified Windows AD domain, or an AD sync-up is needed.
Verify Azure AD Connection
1. Follow steps 1-3 from the above procedure.
2. On the Select Users or Groups window, enter the Azure AD username (e.g., firstname.lastname@example.org).
3. Click Check Names.
If it resolves, that means your machine is joined with an Azure AD domain. Otherwise, your machine is not joined with the specified Azure AD domain, or an AD sync-up is needed.
4. Click Cancel when you’re done.
