VPN use Active Directory for authentication

Appreciated your support on this case 

 

Today i have windows server been used as VPN server, and now since we have the Meraki i need to shift the VPN from the windows server to the Meraki and i still need to use the active directory for user authentication.

 

I found this document but my question is 

 I have the following documentation and my question is

https://documentation.meraki.com/MX/Content_Filtering_and_Threat_Protection/Configuring_Active_Direc...



Do i need to to add the active directory on Log into Dashboard and navigate to Security & SD-WAN > Configure > Active Directory first then configure the VPN authentications or i have to do the client VPN authentication directly?


And can i do that in parallel to the to the existing service on the VPN windows server for easy migration ?

Kind of a big deal

You only need to do the bit for client VPN authentication.

You only need to configure the bits on the client VPN tab.

  • If no certificate is present, it will be necessary to install a Self-Signed certificate.
  • If a certificate already exists, please ensure that it has been configured with the necessary parameters for TLS
  • is this must on the AD server .
