  1. From the ESM Console, select SettingsESMSettings.
    If you cannot log into the ESM Console, use the Database (DB) Configuration Tool to verify, and optionally change, the authentication mode (see Configure Administrative Access to the ESM Console Using the DB Configuration Tool).
  2. Select the Authentication Mode:
    • Machine—authenticates users using a local account
    or
    • Domain—authenticates users using Active Directory.
  3. Save your changes.
