Configuring the LDAP Function

Configuring the LDAP Function


Enable and configure the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) function on the iBMC WebUI. The LDAP allows domain users to access the iBMC.

  • The LDAP is a unified authentication solution that enables the system to quickly respond to user queries.
  • For details about how to create a domain controller, a user domain, and LDAP users, see domain controller documents. The iBMC only allows access from LDAP users.



Obtain the following data before the configuration:

  • Information about an available LDAP server
    • LDAP server address
    • LDAP server domain name
    • LDAP server host name
    • LDAP server user application folder
  • Password for logging in to the iBMC WebUI
  • Name of the LDAP group to which the LDAP user belongs


    Configure an LDAP server.

    The iBMC only supports interconnection with Windows active directory (AD) servers. The following use Windows Server 2008 as an example to describe how to configure the LDAP server. If the LDAP server is available, skip over this step.

    • If the iBMC version is 2.46 or earlier, the group names, user names, and CN configured on the LDAP server for the iBMC cannot contain the following special characters: \";<>#+=,

    • On the LDAP server, DisplayName and CN must be the same.

    1. Install Windows Server 2008 on the server to be configured.
    2. Choose Start > Computer > Manage.

      The Server Manager dialog box is displayed.

    3. Add a user to the Users organization.

      For example, set the user name to test and the password to Huawei12#$.

    4. Right-click Active Directory Users and Computers to add a domain name, for example,
    5. Right-click the domain name and choose New > Organizational Unit to add an organizational unit, for example Huawei.
    6. Right-click the newly added organizational unit (Huawei), and choose New > Organizational Unit to add a lower-level organizational unit, for example test1.

      You can use the same method to create multi-level organizational units, for example Huawei -> test1 -> IThelpdesk.

    7. Right-click the organizational unit of the lowest level (for example IThelpdesk), and choose New > Group to create an LDAP group, for example BMC User.

      You can create multiple LDAP groups, such as BMC admin and BMC Operator, as shown in Figure 3-31.

      Figure 3-31 Newly created organizational units and LDAP groups

    8. Right-click BMC User and choose Properties from the shortcut menu.
    9. Select the Member Of tab and click Add.

    2. On the LDAP Settings page, set Certificate Verification to Enable.
    3. Click Browse next to Upload Certificate, and select the root certificate to be uploaded.

      The root certificate must be in .cer, .pem, .cert, or .crt format.
