Setup Ldap Server 2012 R2

Setup Ldap Server 2012 R2 – In this simple example scenario, we will see how Active Directory (Windows Server 2012) can be connected to the DataPower Appliance and how LDAP users can be given access to the Appliance.

Overall, we will go through the steps to deploy and configure Active Directory on Windows Server 2012 (R2) as an LDAP repository with a simplified setup and configure the DataPower Appliance to connect to this LDAP repository.

This example scenario can provide a quick overview of how to configure DataPower and Active Directory to use LDAP users. Interested parties can quickly and easily configure LDAP users to log into DataPower.

When the installation is complete, you can click on the Server Management notification icon. There we see the post-deployment configuration task. Click on the link “Promote this server to a domain controller”:

In this example, we are adding a new forest. Therefore, select this deployment option and give it the root domain name (in this case “testDN.AD”):

Enter the password for Directory Services Recovery Mode, leave “Create DNS Delegation” unchecked, and confirm the default NetBIOS domain name and path values. The prerequisites are then checked and you can install the specified Active Directory services.

At the end of the installation, Windows Server will restart and you will enter a new password for your TESTDNAdministrator user. Your server should now be set up with Active Directory Domain Services running:

3. Add the user to AD users and computers

Next we need to create our example user. To do this, you should open “Active Directory Users and Computers” (Server Management > Tools > Active Directory Users and Computers).

Here you can see the forest structure of your domain and you can create new users, e.g. by right-clicking on the white field and selecting New > User:

Set the full name, login name and password and confirm. As a result, your users (in our case “testers”) appear in the forest. Then you can create a new organizational unit by right-clicking New > Organizational Unit. Name it test_API and drag and drop the created user to this OU. By following these steps, you should end up with the following structure:

4. Test LDAP connections, bindings and searches

How To Configure The Ldap Parameters

Next, you should test that the Active Directory settings are working correctly. There are several options and third-party tools to test this. Finally, you’ll find the “ldp” tool on your Windows Server, which is a simple tool for testing connections, bindings, and lookups against LDAP repositories:

Setup Ldap Server 2012 R2

In Connection > Bind, you just need to set the server IP address and port of the Active Directory server (default 389), and for binding (Connection > Bind) you can leave it in “Bind as currently logged in user” and confirm:

The configuration is mainly done (only in our case) in the RBM settings. See the following Knowledge Center documentation for detailed steps to configure RBM using LDAP authentication.

In our case, to get LDAP bound and discover LDAP users working, we just need to configure the Authentication and Credential Mapping tab in the RBM settings:

Here we should change the authentication method to LDAP and enter the appropriate server host, server port and Active Directory Server LDAP version:

Note: You can check if you can communicate with the Active Directory server by running a ping and TCP (or telnet) connection test through, for example, the Troubleshoot panel.

A very important step can be defining a backup user. In this case, we set DataPower as a local administrator fallback user to jump in if something doesn’t work with RBM based on the LDAP authentication method:
