About LDAP servers

LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) is a TCP-based protocol for querying and modifying directory services. LDAP is the protocol on which many domain management tools are based. You can configure both Microsoft Active Directory and Novell NDS LDAP servers.

Self Signed Certificates
If you will be connecting your LDAP servers using SSL, your SSL certificates cannot be self-signed. You will need to configure your LDAP server to use certificates with the CA property set (Root CA Certificates).

Mobile device management does not integrate with Active Directory.

There are two benefits to integrating N-able N-central with LDAP servers:

  • Active Directory/LDAP users can sign in to N-able N-central using their domain credentials rather than an email address. The format of the credentials used by Active Directory/LDAP users to sign in to N-able N-central must be in the form of donmain.local\username. For example, domain.local\jsmith. No other format will be accepted.
  • Users with disabled Active Directory/LDAP accounts cannot log in to N-able N-central.

For large user directories, enable the Virtual List View on your LDAP server to ensure N-able N-central loads the entire user list .
