Network enterprises that have a large number of users, popularly manage user credentials via a centralized system. The centralized system ensures user identification across all the networked enterprise resources and services. Users too benefit immensely, as they need a singular credential to access anything across the network enterprise.
Authenticate the users, based on their Directory Service Credentials.
1. For this example we are going to create a user in our Active Directory domain to use for testing. We'll call this user 'tsc1' and add her to a new OU or organizational unit called 'TSC'.
2.Enter the information for your AD server. To assist with entering this information you can always run a 'dsquery'at the server's command prompt .For the UTM to search the entire domain, simply enter the 'DC=(domain name),DC=(domain suffix)' or for one single user you can include the 'CN=(username)'.
Find in the 'Base DN' address using below command
“ dsquery ou -name T* ”
Find in the 'Bind DN' address using below command
“dsquery user -name T* ”
Note: Bind password is which created user in active directory for eg. tsc1
3.Create UTM to LAN firewall rule for AD server.
Source IP: any IPv4 >> Service : TCP Port 389 >> Destination IP: AD server IP 192.168.2.250.
4.Enter the AD information in UTM >>User Management >> Authentication Server and when you are done click 'Test setting' to establish a connection. Note that you only need to use one AD user to establish a connection to the AD server. In this case we'll use 'tsc1'.
Note: Authentication Type must be “Active Directory”.
5.You can see all TSC organizational user are added in Users from AD server.
