ePO 5.10 LDAPS vs LDAP

Since LDAP transmits communications in Clear Text, and LDAPS communication is encrypted and secure.

Any idea of how I can convert my current ldap task in ePO (5.10)  to ldaps.

Thanks in advance.

Under your registered servers for LDAP, check the box for Use SSL.

Re: ePO 5.10 LDAPS vs LDAP

Hi @Sohel ,

Firstly, Thank you for posting your query! LDAPS is basically LDAP working over SSL. Hence enabling that would be done by enabling SSL.

Steps are as follows:

  1. Login to ePO Server.
  2. Please go to Menu --> Registered Servers.
  3. On this Page, please Select your AD Server and select Actions --> edit.
  4. Now Select the AD Server where you wish to enable SSL and click next.
  5. You should arrive at a page like below where you can enable "Use SSL option" option.

This should ensure LDAPS is used by ePO Server whenever the AD server is contacted.

Thanks.

If I apply the settings now - is there going to be any impact on my current ldap (which is running w /o ssl) connection?

also, do you know if McAfee has any KB on this?

 

Thanks again.

Re: ePO 5.10 LDAPS vs LDAP

I am not sure of any impact - that might depend on if you are using encryption user based policies. If the connection fails, it might impact those systems. You can check with the encryption team on that. Here are some kb's I found that might be helpful. kb88566, kb81189, kb66105, and kb58496. The last one isn't specific to epo, but might have some helpful info in it.
