Configuring LDAP Options (NSM Procedure)

You can configure Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) authentication options.

To configure LDAP options:

  1. In the NSM navigation tree, select Device Manager > Devices.
  2. Click the Device Tree tab, and then double-click the device for which you want to configure the LDAP options.
  3. Click the Configuration tab. In the configuration tree, select Access > Ldap Options.
  4. Enter a comment for the LDAP option in Comment.
  5. Enter the amount of time that elapses before the primary server is contacted, if backup server is being used in Revert Interval.
  6. Enter a distinguished name (DN) in Base Distinguished Name .

    The base distinguished name can be used in one of the following ways:

    • If you are using the assemble statement so that the user's distinguished name is being assembled, the base distinguished name is appended to a username to generate the user's distinguished name. The resulting distinguished name is used in the LDAP bind call.
    • If you are using the search statement so that the user's distinguished name is found by a search, the search is restricted to the subtree of the base distinguished name.
  7. Click one:
    • OK—Saves the changes.
    • Cancel—Cancels the modifications.
    • Apply—Applies the LDAP option parameters.
