CA Harvest Software Change Manager
We do have several good documents to review when learning about LDAP and reconfiguring Harvest to use it.
The Implementation Guide is your best source for the documentation. You'll find bits and pieces on LDAP authentication all throughout this document, but in particular, you should review the following:
Chapter: Installing CA Harvest SCM on Windows
How to Prepare for the OpenLDAP Installation
Chapter: Configure Broker and Server on UNIX, Linux, and zLinux
See the section titled "External Authentication Configuration" (no hyperlink for this, so you'll have to look for it.)
In the Knowledge Base there are several articles as well. Some of these might be a bit older, but the concepts are all there. You should review:
Authenticating Harvest users over LDAP is taking too long. How can we make LDAP authentication work more efficiently?
Trouble while setting up Harvest LDAP authentication. Which tools could help?
Finally, there is a special command line utility you can use to test your LDAP settings before adding them to your HServer.arg file:
