User Permissions with LDAP Authentication not what expected

  • 1.  User Permissions with LDAP Authentication not what expected

    Posted 03-19-2015 06:01 AM

    I have configured LDAP authentication and mapped AD Security Group to the admin switch Role. I can login sucessfully via the CLI or WebTools with my domain credentials. In the bottom right corner of WebTools main window my Role is shown as "Admin". When I got to Configure/Switch Admin things start to get strange. I still show up as having the "Admin" Role, but many buttons are grayed out and on the Users Tab the line item for my session has a Chassis Role of "No Access". Any thoughts on why I do not actually have Admin rights? I am running v7.2.1a on an DCX.

    I should also mention that I did NOT issue:

     

    ad --select 255

     

    before the aaaconfig and ldapcfg commands.

     

    I see from searching other threads that this ad command is recommended. I have to admit I am not sure exactly what it does. LDAP seems to work, except for the aforementioned issue.
