Re: Brocade 5300B, setting up ldap

Select top level AD (Admin Domain, not Active Directory)
ad --select 255

Add the Domain Controllers to AAAConfig:
aaaconfig --add -conf ldap -d

Map the administrative groups in Active Directory to roles in the switch:
ldapcfg --maprole SAN_USER user
ldapcfg --maprole SAN_ADMIN admin

Enable LDAP authentication, and if that fails use local:
aaaconfig --authspec "ldap;local"
