Another Directory Server problem

Hi,

I've read almost every thread with AD Authentication problem and even with that I couldn'd solve my issue.  Like everything in our domain it should be something really simple but I can't find it.

 

I'm using the version 1.20.03-0027947, Feb 17, 2015 For Vmware vSphere

 

Every time I try to add my directory I get this error:

 

"Cannot authenticate the server with the given credentials, search context and certificate.
Verify that the server is active and the user credentials, search context and certificate are correct."

 

I try to bind all 4 Certificates that I have on the Domain Controller that I'm using to authenticate.

I used ldp.exe to test the SSL connection on port 636 of my DC | It worked

I've use different search Context

Field1:CN

Field2:CN=G_OneView_Administrators, OU=Admin Groups, OU=MyCity, OU=Mycompany

Field3:DC=Domain, DC=Local

 

My Credentials use to verify the connection is a domain admin

 

So my guess is the Directory server certificate but I can't find why it doens't work.

Re: Another Directory Server problem

Field 2 is the OU structure, not the CN value for your AD group. Once the auth directory is added, you go to Users to add a Directory Group on the appliance.

Re: Another Directory Server problem

Nice, I've miss understood the documentation down there:

 

It worked after I've removed  my groups of the field2. I've just put the root folder where my groups are in then under users and groups I've added the directory groups like you said.

 

Thanks for your help

 

 

Example:

The example in the following table uses the + syntax to combine these three search contexts:

CN=AdminUsers,OU=Engineering,DC=example,DC=com

CN=NetworkingUsers,OU=NetworkTeam,DC=example,DC=com

CN=Groups,DC=example,DC=com

First text box:

CN

Second text box:[a]

CN=AdminUsers,
OU=Engineering+CN=NetworkingUsers,
OU=NetworkTeam+CN=Groups

Third text box:

DC=example,DC=com

[a] The text in the right column was split into separate lines for legibility.
