iLO 2 LDAP authentication



I just setup LDAP server (not windows AD) and configured iLO 2 to authenticate against it. Everything seem good until I entered wrong password and *surprise* I was in!


Here are my iLO settings:


Use Directory Default Schema:  enabled

Local User Accounts: enabled

Directory Server Address:

Directory Server LDAP Port: 636

Directory User Context 1: ou=People,ou=users,dc=domain,dc=com


Security Group Distinguished Name: cn=systems,ou=Groups,dc=domain,dc=com


LDAP server has objecClass "user" and memberOf attribute for the user:


ldapsearch -x cn=testuser objectClass=user memberof -LLL
dn: cn=testuser,ou=People,ou=users,dc=domain,dc=com
memberof: cn=systems,ou=Groups,dc=domain,dc=com


Would anyone know why iLO let's me in when i enter wrong password?

Re: iLO 2 LDAP authentication

huh, this is peculiar... iLO 3 doesn't let me in with the wrong password!


Looks like this is a bug in iLO 2.


Could someone test iLO 2 LDAP authentication with incorrect password?
