2.7 Integration with LDAP for User Authentication
LDAP Integration only works with the TM-800, TM-1000, TS-700 and TS-900 appliances. Login to your RHUB appliance and enter the management page shown in Figure 2.2. Under Integration click the
Integration link and you will be shown the settings in Figure 2.16. To integrate with the LDAP server, specify:
- the LDAP server’s IP address as the Host IP address
- the LDAP Port for TCP communication (not the SSL port)
- any user’s distinguished name as the User DN
- the Password for the user specified in the Password field
Figure 2.16 Enable LDAP integration
Only LDAP Version 3 is supported. No SSL encryption can be used for User DN and Password authentication. If a user with valid credentials fails to pass authentication by your LDAP server, check the following:
- Your LDAP configuration meets with the work conditions of this system.
- Your LDAP entries have the "distinguishedName" (DN) attribute filled with proper values. Empty values are not allowed. A Microsoft Active Directory server should automatically fill proper values for the attribute.
If the LDAP authentication fails, you have two ways to access your RHUB appliance:
- Disconnect this appliance from your LDAP server in order to force this system to use its local saved user credentials to continue user authentication.
- Reset this system, which will disable the use of the LDAP service.
