9.1 LDAP and Active Directory

To install or upgrade Novell SecureLogin 7.0 SP1 in an LDAP directory environment, you must extend the LDAP schema with Novell SecureLogin attributes. However, no change is required to Microsoft Active Directory (AD) schema.

You must manually assign read and write access to the new SecureLogin attributes. Due to a wide variety of LDAP-compliant directories, Novell does not provide a specific tool for assigning permissions to directory attributes.

If the LDAP directory and Microsoft AD are synchronized, Novell SecureLogin can seamlessly pass a users’ AD’s credentials to LDAP so that users enter their login credentials only once.
