I'm trying to get VMO working with our Active Directory environment, which only acceps LDAPS connections. When VMO tries to connect to AD, I receive the following error: "Unable to connect to LDAP server. Simple bind failed <server ip:port>"
A few questions:
2. Do any SSL certs need to be imported into VMO in order for binding to occur successfully when using LDAPS?
Any assistance would be appreciated. The wall in my cube is starting to get a dent from where my head keeps banging against it.
You will need to import the SSL Certificate(s) from your Active Directory server(s). You can do this either from a url or from a file.
There is a check box to indicate that your LDAP server(s) use SSL. Be sure to check that.
Also make certain the LDAPS port number in use is correct. Normally the port number is 636 but check with your AD administrator.
Then you must restart the VMO Configuration Server.
