As a system administrator, you can configure your
vCloud Director system organization and any other organization in the system to use an LDAP server as a source of users and groups. The organizations can use either the system LDAP connection or a private LDAP connection.
Configure a System LDAP Connection To provide vCloud Director and its organizations with shared access to users and groups, you can configure an LDAP connection at a system level.
Configure an Organization LDAP Connection You can configure an organization to use the system LDAP connection as a shared source of users and groups. You can configure an organization to use a separate LDAP connection as a private source of users and groups.
Configure, Test, and Synchronize an LDAP Connection To configure a system or organization LDAP connection, you set the details of your LDAP server. You can test the connection to make sure that you entered the correct settings and the user and group attributes are mapped correctly. When you have a successful LDAP connection, you can synchronize vCloud Director with the LDAP server at any time.
