LDAP Ping testing is a feature of Symantec Encryption Management Server (previously PGP Universal Server). Administrators can now test their LDAP Directory Synchronization configuration. The configuration test feature reports success or failure and, to the extent possible, the reason for any failure.
Encryption Management Server tests Directory Synchronization for the connection to the LDAP server by validating the information you enter into the fields for the LDAP server and then uses that information to ping the LDAP server.
Only the host and port are required for the ping test, but Base DN, Bind DN, and passphrase information will also be tested.
This article assumes that the Hostname and Port as well as any Base DN or Bind DN have been previously configured.
Use the following steps to test the LDAP server connection
If no results are displayed, check if the LDAP Directory settings are correct and the try testing the directory again.
