CA Performance Management - Usage and Administration DX NetOps


PM is unable to connect to active directory and so no user can logon

Users are unable to log in to the DX NetOps Performance Management PC Portal web UI using their LDAP Active Directory based account.

LDAPS for HTTPS is configured. The LDAPS configuration via SsoConfig is as follows. It was working but no longer does.

Connection User: {0}
Search Domain: LDAPS://<LDAP_Host>:636/ou=<value>,ou=<value>,DC=<value>,DC=<value>
Search String: [sAMAccountName={0}}
Search Scope: Subtree
User Bind: Disabled
Encryption: DIGEST-MD5
Account User: {SAMAccountname}
Account User Default Clone: user
Status: Enabled
Timeout: 10000

When we use the Test LDAP option via SsoConfig we see the following error.

Could not obtain a DirectoryContext.
javax.naming.CommunicationException: SASL bind failed: <LDAP_Host>:636 [Root exception is java.net.SocketException: Connection or outbound has closed]


All supported DX NetOps Performance Management releases


The existing HTTPS Certificate from LDAP had changed but was not yet updated in the PC Portal system.


Export the new HTTPS SSL Certificate from the LDAP server and import it to Performance Center.

The steps to complete that process are found on the Import the LDAP Certificate documentation page.
