Configure LDAP directories

Use the Active directory source dialog box to manage the LDAP directories you use with LANDESK Management Suite. The LDAP server, username and password you enter are saved and used when you browse or execute queries to the directory. If you change the password of the configured user in the LDAP directory, you must also change the password in this dialog box.

NOTE: The account you configure in directory manager must be able to read the users, computers and groups that you use for management with LDMS.

To configure a new directory
  1. Click Configure > Manage Active Directory sources.
  2. Click Add.
  3. Enter the DNS name of the directory server in the LDAP:// field.
  4. Enter the User name and Password.

NOTE: If you are using Active Directory, enter the name as <domain-name>\<nt-user-name>. If you are using another directory service, enter the distinguished name of the user.

  1. Click OK to save the information. The information you enter is verified against the directory before the dialog box closes.
