Speeding up AD authentication when you have a deeply nested AD tree

  • 1.  Speeding up AD authentication when you have a deeply nested AD tree

    A long long time ago,  Aruba brought out a tech note on how to "tweak" an AD authentication source  to speed up  auths if you had a deeply nested tree. I implemented this on our UoY clusters and promptly forgot about it.

    I'm now looking after some vanilla 6.7 clusters that are being dragged kicking and screaming  up to 6.9.6 and just wondered, if, as part of the upgrade whether the tech note patch would be rolled out or if you still  had to apply the tech note manually

    Alex, not sure which Tech Note you have. I created a few months ago a video on your options with Nested AD groups. Recommended for performance is the use of tokenGroups. I'm not aware of changes between 6.7 and 6.9 in handling of nested AD groups, but it may be worth getting your partner or Aruba support involved if you have seen performance issues in the past.
