Verifying Connectivity to Active Directories

Before you begin, you need the following information:

  • The hostname and port number of the Active Directory domain controller

  • The username and password for the domain controller

You can verify that the connections to Active Directories are working properly using a Windows tool called Ldp.exe. Ldp.exe is a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) tool that enables you to connect to and bind with LDAP-compatible directories such as an Active Directory.

To verify connectivity to an Active Directory using Ldp.exe:

  1. From a JIMS server or an Active Directory domain controller, open a command shell and type:


    The Ldp GUI Tool page appears.

  2. On the Ldp GUI Tool page, select Connection > Connect.

    The Connect page appears.

  3. To connect with an Active Directory domain controller, enter the hostname of the domain controller, enter the port number, select the SSL check box, and click OK.
  4. Select Connection > Bind.

    The Bind page appears.

  5. Type the username, password, and domain information and select the option button for Bind with credentials to bind with the credentials configured in Juniper Identity Management Service.
  6. If this was successful (no errors were returned in the right-hand panel), select View > Tree from the Ldp GUI Tool page.

    The Tree View page appears.

  7. Specify an empty Base Domain Name value (enter no value) and click OK.

    A page similar to the following appears:

  8. Double-click CN=Users (CN stands for Common Name) and then select a user.

    You should see output similar to the output in the lower-right of the window as shown in the following figure:

    If you can see the user information, Juniper Identity Management Service is receiving this information as well.
