    I was just browsing the community and saw this post and it helped me out for sure. I was looking to add my switches to LDAP so I grabbed this guide as well.

    Thanks Jack!

    aaaconfig --add IP_ADDRESS -conf ldap -p 389 -d DOMAIN_NAME

    Can you please specify which IP address and which Domain name you used?
    Was that the LDAP server IP  Address and the same LDAP server Domain_name?

    Thanks

    I have a question on this subject.

    We don't need any kind of certificate for LDAP do we?

    I configured LDAP using the guide and I get an error saying "TLS channel failed Can't contact LDAP server".

    Just to make sure I'm clear my ldap server is ldaps-sd.bc.smith.com. The IP for that server is 153.64.22.215 for examples.

    So the command I give is the following - aaaconfig --add 153.64.22.215 -conf ldap -p 389 -d bc.smith.com

    Should the above not work?
