Verifying your connection to the LDAP server

In this section, you will verify that the parameters you provided allow DC/OS to connect to the LDAP server.

  1. Click Test Connection to validate your connection.

  2. Enter a user ID in the external LDAP directory in the LDAP Username field. The %(username)s string will be replaced with the user ID that you supply.

    To simulate an actual login as closely as possible, we recommend using the credentials of a user other than the lookup user.

  3. Type the user’s password in the LDAP Password field.

  4. Click Test Connection.

  5. You should see this message: Connection with LDAP server was successful!. If the test fails, read the error message to determine and fix the issue.
