This article describes how to set up the LDAP authentication feature on the SMA and SDA Appliances.
User accounts can be created and managed on the appliance. Users who access the Administrator Console and User Console using these accounts are referred to as locally authenticated.
Types of locally authenticated user accounts include:
- System-level user accounts. Accounts that enable users to log in to the System Administration Console to manage appliance settings, such as the appliance host name and network settings. System-level user accounts include the default admin account for the appliance. These accounts also enable access to organization-level components (admiui) and the User Console.
- Organization user accounts. Accounts that enable users to log in to the Administrator Console Organization level (Administrator Console ) to manage organization-specific components. These components may include Inventory, Assets, Distribution, Scripting, Security, Service Desk, and User Console depending on the user's role.
