By default, vOneCloud authentication uses an internal user/password system with user and group information stored in an internal database.

If you want vOneCloud to have your users pulled from a corporate Active Directory, all the needed components are enabled and just an extra configuration step is needed. As requirements, you will need an Active Directory server with support for simple user/password authentication, as well as a user with read permissions in the Active Directory user’s tree.

Log into the vOneCloud console, and then proceed to fill the following information in /etc/one/auth/ldap_auth.conf:

You will need to change the following values in the configuration file (/etc/one/auth/ldap_auth.conf):

user Active Directory user with read permissions in the user’s tree plus the domain.
password password of this user
host hostname or IP of the Domain Controller
base base DN to search for users.
user_field Set it to “sAMAccountName”
