LMS 3.0 MS active directory

Unanswered Question
Nov 7th, 2007

dear all,

I just installed a LMS3.0 using MS AD(2003) for authentication. it seems to me that everyone in the AD is athenticated rather than a group in that AD as we expected.

our AD structure is :

hola.nssnet.net

|->group1

. |-> subscrisber

. |-> groups2

. |->admin

I setup on LMS3.0 like this:

server; ldap://x.x.x.x

useroot: cn=admin, cn=group2, cn=subscribers, cn=group1, dc=hola, dc=nssnet, dc=net

RDN-Prefix:

is there anyway that we allow only users in group "admin" to access LMS rather than everyone in AD?

thanks,

tao

I have this problem too.

Anyone who successfully authenticates against the login module (AD in this case) will be allowed to access LMS. Their degree of access will depend on the roles you have assigned them. If they do not have a local account in LMS, then they will get Help Desk privileges. The only way to prevent this is to integrate LMS with ACS, and integrate that ACS server with AD. In that way, ACS will be stricter in who it allows to access LMS.
