ad-server authentication manager

ad-server authentication manager


By default, no administrator DN and password of an AD authentication server is configured.


ad-server authentication manager manager-dn password [ repassword ]

undo ad-server authentication manager


Parameter Description Value
manager-dn Specifies the administrator DN of an AD authentication server.

If the manager-dn value does not contain any space, its length ranges from 1 to 180 characters. If the manager-dn value contains spaces, its length ranges from 3 to 182 characters, and you must enclose the manager-dn value with double quotation marks ("), for example, "cn=test manager,cn=users".

This parameter must be used together with the ad-server authentication manager-with-base-dn enable command. For example, the administrator account is under Base DN and belongs to the users group. In this case, set the administrator DN to either of the following values:
  • cn=administrator,cn=users if ad-server authentication manager-with-base-dn enable.
  • cn=administrator,cn=users,dc=example,dc=com if undo ad-server authentication manager-with-base-dn enable.
password Specifies the administrator password of an AD authentication server.

The value is a string that contains 1 to 31 characters in simple text or 68 characters in cipher text. The simple text string cannot contain & or ". If the string has 1 to 16 characters, the cipher text is 48-byte long; if the string has 17 to 31 characters, the cipher text is 68-byte long.


To enhance security, the password of the AD administrator is recommended to meet the minimum strength requirements, that is, it needs to contain at least three types of the following characters: upper-case letters, lower-case letters, digits (0 to 9), and special characters such as exclamation points (!), at signs (@), number signs (#), dollar signs ($), and percent (%), and contains at least six characters.

repassword Re-enters the administrator password of an AD authentication server. The value must be the same as that of password.

To configure the DN and password of an AD administrator, run the ad-server authentication manager command.
