Active Directory Authentication

 

A brief SevOne video on how to connect your LDAP server to the SevOne appliance

Transcription:

Hello and welcome to another SevOne training video. Today we're going to talk about LDAP authentication and how to add an LDAP server to your instance of SevOne.

This is useful if you already have a domain environment and you'd like to add those groups of users to SevOne. After you add those groups of users to SevOne, you can then administer them through the roles and user administration.

What I have here is I have an instance of SevOne up and I also have access to my active directory users and computers. First, what you're going to do is navigate to Administration, Access Configuration and then Authentication Settings.

Click on LDAP, click on the Actions drop down, click on New Server and here you're going to see Edit Server window. You need the IP of the server and then leave the Port as 389. Here you're going to need the Base and Bind distinguish names. In order to get those, you're going to flip over to your server and the base is going to be the domain here as you can see SevOne then marketlocal. Right click. Click on Properties, go to the Attribute Editor and here you can see the Distinguish Name. If you double click on this you can just copy the text here and then paste that into the SevOne appliance.

Next up we're going to find the Bind domain name and that can be gained through, say you made a user for your LDAP connection specifically, we have LDAP bind here. We can right click on him, navigate to Properties, go to the Attribute Editor once again and then scroll to Distinguish name. Here you can see it's a little more verbose than the other one so you'll be able to tell the two apart.

You're going to need the password for that account. Next you need to populate the user name field with lower case sAMAccountName and you can leave these as set. Click Save.

Next highlight the server, go to the drop down and click Test Settings. If you get a green bar up top it's successful and it connected to your domain controller. Then here we're going to come down to the Synchronize Roles pane, click on Add Groups, click the drop down, select the LDAP server that we created and in the Search pane, type one space and that will display all the active directory groups that we have.

We're going to check the domain admins and then from here you can see, click on + gives you an overview of all the domain admins that are in that group. Click Add and you close this window. Click Save LDAP settings. Now in order to see the users and groups that you've created, navigate to Administration, hover over Access Configuration, click User Role Manager and then expand these subsets. Here, under LDAP, you can see the domain users, the domain admins which we've created. From this screen you can then set permissions, device and device groups access, and user and user roles access.
