Test Connectivity dialog box

Contributors

The Test Connectivity dialog box enables you to test the connection to the system associated with a credential. The test connectivity operation triggers the search path and first looks for an exact match, then for a pattern match, and finally for LDAP service authentication.

The Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) is used to check if the system is running before testing for connectivity.
