Can I have a mixture of Active Directory users and existing Emerge Management Console users?

Yes our Active Directory support allows you to have this mixed model, it’s not an all-or-nothing switch.

With Active Directory support enabled any user that tries to log into Emerge and is not listed in the Emerge Management Console, or who is listed but has an incorrect password, will be tested against your Active Directory too.  This means that you can run a mixture of Active Directory and Emerge users, and it also provides a migration method if your Emerge usernames happen to match your Active Directory usernames (which quite often we find they do!)
