(Sorry for the inconvenience)

SCREENSHOTS AND DESCRIPTIONS MAY CHANGE AFTER BETA1

Beginning with PC-BSD 9.1, the Control Panel contains an AD & LDAP Configuration icon for managing connections settings those servers. If your network contains an Active Directory ([1][1]) or a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol ([2][2]) server, use this icon to input the settings needed to connect to your account information stored on the network. At this time, these settings can not be set during installation of PC-BSD 9.1, it will be added as a feature of version 9.2.

NOTE: this utility is to manage the client , not the Active Directory or LDAP server itself.

Figure 8.3a shows the configuration utility with the Active Directory tab open.

If you need to connect to a network running Active Directory, check the box "Enable Active Directory". This will ungrey out the rest of the screen, allowing you to configure the following:

  • Domain Controller Name: the IP address or hostname of the Windows domain controller. This setting is mandatory.
  • Domain Name: name of Active Directory domain (e.g. example.com) or child domain (e.g. sales.example.com). This setting is mandatory.
  • NetBIOS Name: hostname of PC-BSD system.
  • Allow Trusted Domains: checking this box is optional. It should only be checked if the network has [3][3] and you need to manage files on multiple domains; use with caution as it will generate more winbindd traffic, slowing down the ability to filter through user/group information
  • Administrator Name: name of the Active Directory Administrator account.
  • Administrator Password: password for the Active Directory Administrator account.

Figure 8.3b shows the configuration utility with the LDAP tab open.

  • Root bind DN: name of administrative account on LDAP server (e.g. cn=Manager,dc=test,dc=org).
  • Root bind password: password for Root bind DN.
  • Password Encryption: select a type supported by the LDAP server, choices are: clear (unencrypted), crypt, md5, nds, racf, ad, or exop.
  • User Suffix: optional, can be added to name when user account added to LDAP directory (e.g. dept. or company name).
  • Group Suffix: optional, can be added to name when group added to LDAP directory (e.g. dept. or company name).
  • Password Suffix: optional, can be added to password when password added to LDAP directory.
  • Machine Suffix: optional, can be added to name when system added to LDAP directory (e.g. server, accounting).
  • Encryption Mode: choices are Off, SSL, or TLS.
  • Self Signed Certificate: used to verify the certificate of the LDAP server if SSL connections are used; paste the output of the command openssl s_client -connect server:port -showcerts.
