    I've been looking into enabling single sign-on for Plesk and Sitebuilder, and although the documentation for both products clearly state how to hook into an SSO server, there is no documentation on how to obtain and actually run the SSO server itself. It doesn't seem to come with Plesk or Sitebuilder.
    Anyone have any ideas or has done this before?

    Thanks
    Brandon

    Hi,

    To use SSO you should:

    1. Install it by running Plesk CLI installer (/usr/local/psa/admin/bin/autoinstaller) and selecting SSO component.
    Or you can download and install required packages manualy. Packages can be downloaded here:
    http://autoinstall.plesk.com/SSO_2.1


    2. Make sure that SSO server is running:
    /usr/local/etc/rc.d/sw-cp-server status
    or
    /etc/init.d/sw-cp-server status

    start it if it is stopped:
    /usr/local/etc/rc.d/sw-cp-server start
    or
    /etc/init.d/sw-cp-server start


    3. Configure and enable SSO server for Plesk:
    /usr/local/psa/bin/sso --set-prefs -server https://IP_ADDRES_OF_YOUR_SERVER:11443
    /usr/local/psa/bin/sso --enable


    4. Enable SSO for Sitebuilder:
    /usr/local/sitebuilder/utils/sso_config --enable_sso --server_url=https://IP_ADDRESS_OF_YOUR_SERVER:11443/


    5. Configure global accounts:

    In case of any issues you should check what records appear in the following logs files:
    /var/log/sso/sso.log
    /usr/local/sitebuilder/tmp/sso_config.log

    Thank you Ziba, I appreciate the help. The "sw-cp-server" sysinit script is not documented anywhere in the Plesk nor Sitebuilder manuals, and is a very misleading name for what it actually starts. I'm glad you replied.
