Logging In as an LDAP User

Before login, ensure that the following settings meet the requirements:
  • A domain controller exists on the network, a user domain has been created on the domain controller, and the LDAP users who belong to the user domain have also been created.
    NOTE:

    For details about how to create a domain controller, a user domain, and LDAP users, see domain controller documents. The iBMC provides only the access function for LDAP users.

  • On the iBMC WebUI, the LDAP function has been enabled, a user domain has been set, and the LDAP users who belong to the user domain have also been set. For details, see the LDAP page.
  1. Select the language to be used.
  2. On the User Login page, enter the LDAP user name and password.
    NOTE:
    • If an LDAP user name is entered in User Name, Domain can be Automatic matching or a specified domain.
    • If LDAP user name@Domain name is entered, Domain must be Automatic matching.
  3. Select the LDAP user domain from the Domain drop-down list.
    NOTE:
    The Domain drop-down list contains the following options:
    • This iBMC: Select this option to log in as a local user. The iBMC automatically locates the user account from the local user list.
    • Configured domain server: Select a domain server to log in as an LDAP user. The iBMC automatically locates the user account from the domain server.
    • Automatic matching: If this option is selected, the iBMC searches for the user account from the local user list first. If no match is found, the iBMC searches from the domain servers in the sequence displayed in the Domain drop-down list.
  4. Click Login.
