Configure LDAP client services with System Manager - ONTAP 9.7 and earlier

Contributors netapp-aoife

You can use ONTAP System Manager classic (available in ONTAP 9.7 and earlier) to add, edit, and delete LDAP client configurations.

Add an LDAP client configuration

You can use System Manager to add an LDAP client configuration at the cluster level or the storage virtual machine (SVM) level if you want to use LDAP services. You must first set up an LDAP client to use LDAP services.

About this task

At the SVM level, you can add an LDAP client only for a selected SVM.

Steps
  1. Add an LDAP client configuration by using one of the following methods:

    • Cluster level: click advanced options > LDAP.

    • SVM level: click SVM > SVM Settings > LDAP Client.

  2. Click Add.

  3. Type the name of the LDAP client.

  4. Add either the Active Directory domain or the LDAP server.

  5. Click advanced options (advanced options), select the Schema, and click Apply.

  6. Specify the Base DN and TCP Port.

  7. Click Binding, and then specify the authentication details.

  8. Click Save and Close.

  9. Verify that the LDAP client that you added is displayed.

Delete an LDAP client configuration

You can use System Manager to delete an LDAP client configuration at the cluster level or the storage virtual machine (SVM) level.

About this task

At the SVM level, you can delete an LDAP client only for a selected SVM.

Steps
  1. To delete an LDAP client configuration:

    • Cluster level: Click advanced options > LDAP.

    • SVM level: Click SVM > SVM Settings > LDAP Client.

  2. Select the LDAP client that you want to delete, and then click Delete.

  3. Select the confirmation check box, and then click Delete.

  4. Verify that the LDAP client that you deleted is no longer displayed.

Edit an LDAP client configuration

You can use System Manager to edit an LDAP client configuration at the cluster level or the storage virtual machine (SVM) level.

About this task

At the SVM level, you can edit an LDAP client only for a selected SVM.

Steps
  1. To edit an LDAP client configuration:

    • Cluster level: Click advanced options > LDAP.

    • SVM level: Click SVM > SVM Settings > LDAP Client.

  2. Select the LDAP client that you want to modify, and then click Edit.

  3. In the Edit LDAP Client dialog box, edit the LDAP client configuration as required.

  4. Click Save and Close.

  5. Verify that the changes that you made to the LDAP client configuration are displayed.

LDAP Client window

You can use the LDAP Client window to create LDAP clients for user authentication, file access authorization, user search, and mapping services between NFS and CIFS at the storage virtual machine (SVM) level.
