Active IQ Unified Manager Discussions
Trying to use AD authentication in OCUM 6.1 with no success:
Unable to communicate with the authentication server because the authentication server is not configured properly. Verify your authentication server configuration.
How AD should be configured to allow OCUM authenticate?
We are having the same issues. Have been working with our AD team and have not come up with a solution. Would like to know if this is a bug as this type of integration is usually fairly simple to setup.
Suggest the Active Directory Bind Account be a user that can authenticate only (Bind) to AD, not a domain admin or other user with elevated privileges.
Administrator Name can be one of three forms listed below.
Authentication Service: Active Directory
Administrator Name: <domain>\<bind_account> --or-- <bind_account>@<domain> --or-- <bind_account_distinguishedname>
Base Distinguished Name: DC=<domain>,DC=<domain>,DC=<company>,DC=<com>
At least one AD server must be entered here. IP Address or FQDN
User Name: <user_name>
The above tests should pass with a user_name of an AD account.
We have it setup just like the instructions call for and have tried different combinations of the instructions as well.
I just tried it with a non admin account as well and we get the same error:
"Unable to communicate with the authentication server because the authentication server is not configured properly. Verify your authentication server configuration."
Try disabling the nested groups user search.
Step 1: Start at the "Enable Remote Authentication" screen.
Step 2: Enable the advanced settings by selecting the "Others" authentication service name and fill in the bind and base names and password.
Step 3: Note the text in the Member text box ( member:1.2.840.1135188.8.131.521: ).
Step 4: Edit that field so that the member line has only the text "member".
Step 5: Click save and perform a test authentication.
That worked like a champ.
May have worked for Andy, but it didn't work for me.
I had this working under DFM 6, prior to the 6.1 upgrade.
Having the same problem with OCUM 6.3RC1.
Same issue as above.. Just putting member in didn't work.. Any other suggestions
