Issue/Introduction

Our company is moving to 25 character service account password for Active Directory/LDAP.

Can EEM handle that for the bind user?

 

Environment

Release : 12.0

Component :

Resolution

As a test to confirm we created a new ldap user named "jjj".
We gave it a long password of
"qwertyuiop_0987654321asdfghjklmnbvcxz"
Saved it and then used it to bind EEM to that LDAP.
It did bind without error.
And the server.xml file encyrpted the password automatically:
Excerpt:

  <userdn>CN=jjj,CN=Users,DC=bedrock123,DC=net</userdn>
  <password>{MUNGE2}GQMRAk5WWgwGETIeWlkZVVpZHEFUEwUBFEgLBQUKBAkKAhcIQA==</password>

Testing was done with EEM 12.6.0.5
