Configuring an AD Connection

Perform the following steps to set up the connection between the UMS and the Active Directory of your company:

  1. Click Active Directory / LDAP in the UMS Administration area of the UMS console.
  2. Click Add (+) in the Active Directory / LDAP Domains mask.
  3. The Add Active Directory / LDAP Service mask opens.

    Add Active Directory / LDAP Service

  4. Select Active Directory Service as Type and enter the Domain Name.

    A number of Active Directories can be linked. You should therefore ensure that you give the correct domain when logging in (e.g. to the UMS console).

  5. Click Resolve to search the Domain Controller(s).

    If this does not work, enter the domain controllers manually (IPs or host names, semicolon separated list).

  6. Enter Page Size and your credentials.

    The Page Size property sets the maximum number of items in each page of results that will be returned by a search. It affects query performance, but NOT the number of overall results. The standard value is 1000. Change this value in line with your server configuration.

  7. Enter UPN Suffixes (Aliases) if you have defined any (semicolon separated list).

    The settings have to correspond to the configuration of the Active Directory. If there are registered UPN suffixes in the AD, they should be known also by the UMS.

  8. Click on Test Connection to check that you have entered valid configuration.
  9. Click OK to confirm your settings.

    The Active Directory Domain is listed in the Active Directory / LDAP Domains mask.
