Workgroup Devices:

NOTE: This is undocumented and probably unsupported by Trend, but I’ve tested this and single sign on works using local username and passwords on the workgroup device as long as the credentials match between the policy server and the workgroup device.

1.Log in to Policy Server MMC

2.Create a group for workgroup devices. We will call this group ‘Workgroup-Devices’

3.Navigate to ‘FDE’ -> ‘Workgroup-Devices’ -> ‘Policies’ -> ‘Common’

4.Expand ‘Common’ -> ‘Authentication’ -> ‘Network Login’

5.Right Click ‘Domain Authentication’ and Select ‘Enable’

6.Click ‘OK’. Don’t worry about the warning. We are only enabling this so that Trend will pass the credentials to Windows. There will be no interaction with Active Directory.
