ILO Active Directory User Name Issue

I've configured ILO with AD, and can log in when I put my "First name, initial and surname".
Can I configure ILO login page to accept my userid instead i.e. kotek001

Thanks

Re: ILO Active Directory User Name Issue

What is the format of the login name you
are trying to use.
Is it
1.short name
Ex : sriv s
2.Distinguished name
Ex : CN=sriv s,CN=Users,DC=mycompu,DC=com
3.loginname@domain.com format
Ex : sriv@mycompu.com

Is kotek001 is the login name ?

Re: ILO Active Directory User Name Issue

I want to use my login name (userid) i.e kotek001. At the moment I have to use First Name, Initial and Last Name (Kamal K. Kotecha).
I think its the way LDAP works on Active Directory, but I wondered if there was way of changing the setting.

Re: ILO Active Directory User Name Issue

I would be interested at seeing a screen shot of your Directory Settings. I also have ILOs configured for AD authentication. If I left the the "Directory User Context #1" field blank, I could only log in with my UserPrincipleName (i.e.userid@domain). Since I put the fully-qualified domain name in "Directory User Context #1", then I only have to enter the SamAccountName (i.e. userid). But in neither case can I log in with First name, Middle Initial, and Surname like you.

Re: ILO Active Directory User Name Issue

Hi

I've attached a word document with screen shots.
As you can see I have configured
Directory User Conext 1 , and 2 with our OU's
I have also done the administrator group setiings.
I can log in as Kamal K. Kotecha , but not kotek001 (my SAMID).

Many Thanks

Kamal

Re: ILO Active Directory User Name Issue

I am using the extended schema, not the Default Directory schema like you are. I'm not sure how the default schema works, so I don't have much input. I'll keep watching the thread though.

Re: ILO Active Directory User Name Issue

Try configuring the user search contexts. You can also verify that these are working on the Directory Tests page.

For example, if you can log in as kotek001@domain
you might want to add the search context @domain.

This should also work with the default schema mode.

There are some suggestions that you should consult on the Directory Settings help page.
