How to configure StarTeam to support Active Directory (LDAP) authentication.
Product Name: StarTeam
Product Version: 2005 R2, 2006
Product Component: Server
Platform/OS Version: All Supported StarTeam Server OS
A common question is whether users can use their Active Directory (AD) domain passwords in StarTeam. To be more specific, this article addresses how to setup StarTeam for use with an AD/LDAP server.
There are two major steps that must be done in order to ensure easy setup.
CAUTION: IF THE AD/LDAP SERVER IS TAKEN DOWN FOR MAINTENENCE, USERS WILL NOT BE ABLE TO LOG INTO STARTEAM.
CAUTION: NEVER CONFIGURE THE ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT TO USE LDAP. USE ONLY LOCAL AUTHENTICATION. If you misplace the administrator password, there will be no way for Borland Support to retrieve it since the password will not be stored in the StarTeam database.
