I have a NPM 2020.2.5. setup. The server hosting it is not joined to the domain. I am trying to use Advanced Active Directory Settings to setup authentication for web console users.
I enter the details as below, after putting the directory server address in I am able to click on the Discover DN button the the DN is auto populated.
When I try to test these settings using the credentials box it always fails, seems like it is timing out. I have taken a pcap from the host and can see there is communication between the NPM host and the AD server. Some response comes back from the AD server and then NPM does nothing further.
I have tried with all methods of authentication and both with and without SSL.
From the same host I have used LDAP connectivity tester and using the same credentials I can connect to and authenticate with the AD.
Anyone ever managed to successfully set this up? I want to avoid joining the NPM host to the domain.
Thanks in advance for any help.
