Adding LDAP to OPSCenter

Hello,

 

 

I need some help about registering an LDAP Active Directory to OPSCenter.

As explained , i added the domain following your instructions :

vssat addldapdomain -d sosm.lan9 -s ldap://myLDAPmachine -u ou="Users",dc="sosm",dc="lan" -g ou="Users",dc="sosm",dc="lan" -t msad -m cn="Administrator",ou="Users",dc="sosm",dc="lan" -w thepassword -b BOB

Then I add the domain broker :

vssat addbrokerdomain -b opsCenterMachine:3652 -d  ldap:mydomain

Then i go to the managment console : Settings > Users .
I select " Existing domain user" , choose the "mydomain" just created.

I type the administrator account.
Everything is ok until now.

But when I try to connect, i always have the same error :

"Login was not successful. Please make sure the username, password, and selected domain are correct for your user account. "

 

In the logs file, I found :

Solution


Use below command to add LDAP/AD domain in VxAT(in this example AT is residing on local OpsCenter).

 

 

# vssat addldapdomain --domainname <any name ex ADBOB> --server_url <ldap://<system FQDN having LDAP setup> --user_base_dn <base DN like DC=Denali,DC=com> --group_base_dn <base DN like DC=Denali,DC=com> --schema_type msad --admin_user <admin use info like CN=Administrator,CN=Users,DC=Denali,DC=com> --admin_user_password <passwd> --auth_type BOB
 
To see list of ldap domains:
            # vssat listldapdomains
 
-          Add broker domain mapping in local registry
            # vssat addbrokerdomain --broker <local AT broker FQDN> --domain ldap:ADBOB
 
List all broker domains:
            # vssat showallbrokerdomains
 
-          Try to authenticate an LDAP user to ensure the set-up is working
      # vssat authenticate --prplname <ldap user>  --password <ldap user passwd> --domain ldap:ADBOB --broker <AT broker name>
 
-          Add ldap users after login to OpsCenter ‘Setting -> Users’ 
 
-          Now on login page user should see the ldap domain in drop down list
