How to configure LDAP over SSL with Flexnet Operation- only for Onprem FNO

Question

How to configure LDAPS in FlexNet Operation(Onprem) where the FNO is already using LDAP communication with Active Directory?

Answer

LDAP is used to read from and write to Active Directory. By default, LDAP traffic is transmitted unsecured. You can make LDAP traffic confidential and secure by using SSL technology.

From the Active Directory server-side you can enable LDAP over SSL (LDAPS) by installing a properly formatted certificate from either a Microsoft certification authority (CA) or a non-Microsoft CA according to the guidelines in this article.

There's no user interface for configuring LDAPS. Installing a valid certificate on a domain controller permits the LDAP service to listen for, and automatically accept, SSL connections for both LDAP and global catalog traffic.

From the Flexnet operations(FNO), side follow these steps.

  1. Go to Administer -> Under Domains -> List Domains
  2. Select existing Domain name  
  3. In the Edit Domain page view update the 
  4. Protocol from LDAP to LDAPS then the port will automatically change from 389 to 636 
  5. Save the config.
