Microsoft Active Directory

Microsoft Active Directory (AD) provide a single point of control for managing users, computers, groups, and other resources on a network. Active Directory uses a structured data store as the basis for a logical, hierarchical organization of directory information

The Lucidum connector ingests the following types of assets:

  • Computers

  • Users

    • Port (optional). ITCP/UDP port 389 . If SSL is enabled, specify TCP port 636.

    • User Name. A user name or email for an AD account that can query/read Active Directory. For a domain user, the user name should be in the form: DOMAIN\USERNAME (for example, LDAP\lucidum). If SSL is enabled, enter an email address.

    • User base. Search base for user information. It is better to provide the “root” base for Lucidum. For example, dc=ad,dc=lucidum,dc=com

    • Password. A password for an AD account that can query/read Active Directory.

    • Computer base. Search base for computer information. Provide the “root” base. For example, dc=ad,dc=lucidum,dc=com
