> In the documentation for the Ldap user authentication located at http://cloudstack.apache.org/docs/en-US/Apache_CloudStack/4.2.0/html/Admin_Guide/LDAPserver-for-user-authentication.html
,it is specified on how to add the Ldap serevr to the CS but steps are not provided on how
to authenticate the Ldap users from the CS.Please add the below steps in the document to make
that clear.
> In the version 4.2 and 4.2.1 there is no way to directly import the Ldap users into the
CS,hence we nee to manually create the Ldap users in the CS with the desired role which we
want to give for that particular ldap user in the CS giving some random password. The Ldap
user can then login to the CS using this password or else can login to the CS using the LDap
password.
> When the user tries to login CS initially validates the password with the local db and
if the password doesn't match it tries to validate with the ldap password for the same user
and provides the authentication for the user.
