Doubt on NNMi LDAP

Hi Experts 

       I have been implementing the NNMi 10.10 on a RHEL box for one of the client and they have the following LDAP[Windows AD] configuration done as given below.. 

  • The LDAP is configured such that the servers will be dynamically changing based on the load. The customer has given the host name of the main domain.Can we configure in NNMi 10.10 for this scenario where IPS will be changing based on the load. If yes can you provide a document or steps to configure this. 
  • The customer configured LDAP has spaces between OU’s. How can we escape spaces while configuring LDAP in baseCtxDN 

Example : baseCtxDN =OU=some Users,OU=Domain Users 

         Kindly help at the earliest as the customer is in an urgent need of it.  

Thanks and Regards

Re: Doubt on NNMi LDAP


  In NNMi 10.10 you can only provide a set of LDAP server names.  These are used in a failover way such that the first entry will be used until it stops responding, only then will requests then be set to the second defined server and so on.    Now in 10.21 this changes and you can configure multiple servers and NNMi will talk to the appropriate one based on the user name filter or just the order configured.   So to answer your questions


  1. Providing the LDAP server name and IP address responds to the LDAP requests NNMi will talk to this address.  If this is load balanced between a server farm this should not be a problem providing its transparent.
  2. For the spaces just put them in as you have done.  The string is taken as a string so embedded spaces should be kept and should not need to be escaped.


  Hope this helps
