Question:  How do I create an LDAP authentication server on ClearPass Guest?


Product and Software: This article applies to ClearPass Guest (formerly known as Amigopod).


To create an LDAP authentication server on ClearPass Guest, navigate to RADIUS> Authentication> Authentication Servers and click the Create new LDAP authentication server button.

From the Create Authentication Server, complete the fields as shown in the following screenshot.




Ensure that the Bind Identity and Base DN are based on the results of the "dsquery" command.





The Base DN should be the container where all of the users that are potentially going to be authenticating to the system exist in the directory structure.

The Username Attribute in Active Directory deployments typically needs to be specified as sAMAccountName.

After you have completed the configuration, click the Save Changes button, and make sure the RADIUS Server is restarted as indicated by this prompt.




After the RADIUS server has been restarted, click the new Active Directory entry and select the Test Authentication option. Enter the details for a known account to verify that the LDAP configuration is correct and returning the expected results.
