Change LDAP to LDAPS

Jump to solution

Hi all,

This is Freco, I have some concern about change to LDAPS from LDAP, appreciate if anyone can help me!!

Details:
In the test, RSA AM connect to "ldaps://dc.com" has succeeded, however, the RSA AM popped me the warning that about "......base DN......".

Here is my question:

The RSA AM is using "ldap://dc.com" now, just want to update to "ldaps://dc.com", will the user mapping to soft/hard token be reset? Or will the base DN be reloaded? Or will it very smart to keep all of settings and nothing change?

 

(The VM version is RSA AM 8.1 SP13)


Regards/Freco

BR,

Nothing changes, it will just use a different tcp port to bind to ldap and of course encrypt the communication. I have a DC that will talk ldap and ldaps,  and can swap between both modes pretty seamlessly. If you are getting a warning about the DN I would suspect it will warn you in either mode. Anyhow, ldap or ldaps does not change the mapping config, just the tcp communication itself.
