Want to use an Active Directory Help !!!

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi everyone,

I want to use an Active Directory for username and password where in I can manage it to work with OpenLDAP.
Any user added with the same credentials and password modified in OpenLDAP shall be added and modified in Active Directory as well.
Can you please help to make this possible?

If you want to set up an active directory then you need to log in as an administrator and then set up the active directory accounts. If you are running on a domain and want to use this domain in active directory then it is possible to create the active user Directory.

You need to build the active directory and then you can set the users and the other related tasks to active directory as per you require. To make an active directory if you are working on server 2003 then you need to start and then to tools and from there you need to use active directory and then set up the active directory account and you will be able to solve your problem.

Once you have an active directory then you need to add users and you can do it easily. Now if you want to add a user then you need to add it in active directory and this user can use settings as you specify on the active directory.
