LDAP Configuration dialog box

How do I get to this dialog box?

From the Administrative Console

  1. Click the Authentication side tab.

  2. From the Authentication system list, choose LDAP and then click Configure.

Use the LDAP Configuration dialog box to set up your Reflection X domain for LDAP authentication. The options are:

Option Description
LDAP host The host the LDAP server is running on.
LDAP port The port the LDAP service is listening on.
Use anonymous SSL Allows communication with the LDAP server to be encrypted. The anonymous SSL option supports standard SSL ciphers but does not verify the authenticity of the LDAP server's certificate.
Search base The area in the directory tree where the users reside. This is the location in the directory from which the LDAP search begins.
DN Schema The distinguished name schema (typically 'distinguishedName'). An LDAP entry is referenced by a distinguished name that uniquely identifies the entry in the directory. It is typically composed of several relative distinguished names (RDN) separated by commas.
UID attribute The unique or user id attribute (for most LDAP users, this is uid. For Microsoft Active Directory users, this is 'sAMAccountName').
Perform authenticated search Allows you to enter credentials for a user with search permissions. This is used when the directory service does not allow anonymous searching.
User DN The distinguished name of a user with permissions to search the directory service.
Password The password for the distinguished name that you entered in User DN.
