Greetings, i am somewhat new to networking and especially Brocade's NOS. We have ordered two VDX 6710's and Two VDX 6720's and have them setup in a test environment. We would like to setup LDAP Authentication on these with a few local accounts as backup. I am using the below commands with no luck in achieving this and was wondering if there is a way to specify what account the switch uses to log into the LDAP server to perform it's look-ups.
in global config mode.
ldap-server host xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx basedn my.domain.com port 389 timeout 8 retries 3
ldap-server maprole group test role admin
aaa authentication login ldap local
i have searched the Network OS Administrators Guide v2.1.1 and searched the available commands on the switch itself to see if there was a way to specify a user account to log into the LDAP server with no luck. am i missing something? Thanks in advance for any help.
also, i am not familiar with any troubleshooting steps to see where any points of failure are on the switch side. any help there is also greatly appreciated.
