When you configure an Active Directory, you can choose to have App Volumes Manager communicate securely with the Active Directory.

Prerequisites

Download the root certificate of the Active Directory to the machine where App Volumes Manager is installed.

If the root certificate is not in PEM (Base64 encoded) format, see the OpenSSL or similar documentation to convert the file to PEM format.

Procedure

  1. Log in as administrator to the machine where App Volumes Manager is installed.
  2. Navigate to the location where you downloaded the root certificate.
  3. Rename the root certificate file to adCA.pem.
  4. Copy the file under manager_root/config directory.

Results

You can now use LDAPs when you register an Active Directory. See Register an Active Directory Domain.

What to do next

If you choose LDAPs when you register an Active Directory, App Volumes Manager checks for the validity of the Active Directory certificate. If the certificate is valid, LDAPs is enabled. If the certificate is invalid, you will get an error and will not be able to proceed further with creating an Active Directory.
