Setting up Cloud Manager to work with AD user accounts

Rather than create new credentials for each Cloud Manager user account, you can set up Cloud Manager so users can log in using your organization's Active Directory (AD) authentication.


  1. In the upper right of the Cloud Manager console, click the task drop-down list, and then select Active Directory Setup.
  2. Enter details about your Active Directory server and then click Save:
    Field Description
    Name Enter a name to distinguish the server within Cloud Manager.
    Host Enter the fully qualified domain name for the Active Directory server.
    Port Enter the TCP port that the Active Directory server uses for LDAP.
    User Name and Password Enter the user name and password for an Active Directory user account, and then click Test Connectivity.

After you finish

Create new user accounts in Cloud Manager by selecting the Active Directory authentication type.
