Overview of the LDAP Workflow

The workflow for setting up Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) requires the following high-level steps:

  1. Create an LDAP server domain.
  2. Map the LDAP groups to the array group roles.
  3. Import the trusted certificate for the LDAP server to the array.
  4. Log on to the array and go to AdministrationSecurity Directory.
  5. Select LDAP from the drop-down list.
  6. Provide the information necessary to allow LDAP to join the array.
  7. After you set up the connection with the array, it is a good practice to check it. Select Test Connection. This action checks the array's connection to the domain.
