LDAP Integration

Hi there,

Hopefully someone can help.

I need to integrate a Filer with an OpenLDAP database to provide authentication and authorisation for NFS exports.

I have downloaded and followed the instructions in TR-3464 "Integration of a NetApp Storage System with a UNIX based LDAP server" to no avail.

I can connect to my OpenLDAP server with an LDAP browser with no problems, but no matter what, my Filer still seems to be pointing at its local files for authentication.

I HAVE made the changes to nsswitch.conf to put LDAP first.  I have also rebooted the filer just in case.

I am problably just missing one important step, but what it is I do not know.

Any help would be appreciated.

Many Regards

Hi Mark,

Did you have any luck with this in the end?



Re: LDAP Integration

Hey Mark,

Do not forget to modify the all the options settings.

I see you already took care of nsswitch.conf

Hope this helps.
