The hack/fix below applies only to  3.x and 4.0.

4.1 and 4.2 - no longer require this specific change

Subject: [jira] [Created] (CLOUDSTACK-1930) LDAP docs are missing some steps

Jessica Tomechak created CLOUDSTACK-1930:
--------------------------------------------

             Summary: LDAP docs are missing some steps
                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-1930
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLOUDSTACK-1930
             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: Public (Anyone can view this level - this is the default.)
          Components: Doc
            Reporter: Jessica Tomechak


In the Admin Guide is a section "Using an LDAP Server for User Authentication". It tells how
to set up the API call and covers LDAP query concepts. However, it skips a couple of configuration
steps which are required to enable LDAP. The below were provided by Stuart Jennings. 

**These steps should be tested and checked to be sure they are still up to date**

(Set up and call ldapConfig ... already covered in the Admin Guide)

Wait for a successful response and then restart cloud-management service – below is an example
of the response you will receive if the API command was a success. 

  <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>
- <ldapconfigresponse cloud-stack-version="3.0.5.20120904142539">
- <ldapconfig>
  <hostname>192.168.21.72</hostname>
  <port>389</port>
  <port>false</port>
  <searchbase>OU=Testing,DC=xendesktop,DC=internal</searchbase>
  <queryfilter>(&(mail=%e))</queryfilter>
  <binddn>CN=Administrator,CN=users,DC=xendesktop,DC=internal</binddn>
  </ldapconfig>
  </ldapconfigresponse>

Amend SharedFunctions and Components.xml Config

Next edit the sharedFunctions.js file – found in /usr/share/cloud/management/webapps/client/scripts
so the md5HashedLogin = false

Example -
// Default password is MD5 hashed.  Set the following variable to false to disable this.
var md5Hashed = true;
var md5HashedLogin = false;

Next edit the /etc/cloud/management/components.xml and change <adapter name="MD5" class="com.cloud.server.auth.MD5UserAuthenticator"/>
To
<adapter name="MD5" class="com.cloud.server.auth.PlainTextUserAuthenticator"/>

Restart cloud-management 

Finally make sure that the user accounts within CloudPlatform have email addresses which match
the mail attributes in active directory.
