CA Performance Management - Usage and Administration DX NetOps


Configured LDAP Single Sign-On in DX NetOps Performance Manager.

Using a Service Account and when I run a test using the SsoConfig tool I get this error:

Enter password > LDAP_User-Passwd
The UserBind option has been selected. We will now perform the first bind with the LdapConnectionUser and LdapConnectionPassword supplied in the SSO Config utility.
