Problem: Is there any way to import user and group information from Microsoft Active Directory?

 

 

Symptoms: N/A

      

 

 

 

Possible Resolution(s):

 

Yes.Stratusphere™ can import user and user group information from Active Directory or any LDAP

compliant name store. Log in to the Administration section of the Stratusphere™ UI using

ssadmin/sspassword credentials. Navigate to the Hub Administration > User Directories tab.Create a

new directory, configure parameters to the domain and then save the directory. You can now

manually import the user and group information or schedule it to import on a regular basis.

 

 

NOTE:

Liquidware Labs would like to caution users to first find out how many groups exist in their Active

Directory prior to performing an import. It is our experience that in most organizations there are

hundred times more groups than there are users thus defeating the purpose of trying to manage

through user groups. Also, the process of importing an LDAP compliant name store is irreversible

because the existing users are then linked to their DNs imported from the name store and the name

store is then considered the master list of users. The process is irreversible because deleting a Active

Directory will result in deletion of all user information as well." button. The ssadmin user will no longer

be able to access the UI.
