Active Directory and SAP Web dispatcher

We have some documentation that mentions that the SAP Web dispatcher needs to connect to our Active Directory Domain.

I was wondering, does the SAP Web dispatcher need access to Active Directory? If so, can you please explain why.

Thank you

    Hi,

    The webdispatcher does not need to connect with Active Directory. The webdispatcher only needs to access the message server and even this is not necessary as you can create the following files which negates the need to connect to the message server.

    (1) info.icr

    (2) icrgroups.txt

    (3) urlinfo.txt

    Hope this helps 😊

    Michael

    Is this official SAP documentation? Could you provide a link to it, to check the context of this statement.

    For a standard load balancing use case, I see no reason why web dispatcher needs to connect to AD.
