Configuring LDAP in Qumulo Core 2.12.1 (and Higher)


  1. Log in to Qumulo Core with an administrative account.
  2. Click Cluster > LDAP.
  3. Hover over the Cluster menu in the Web UI and click on LDAP.
  4. On the LDAP Configuration page, click Edit and then do the following:
    1. For Use LDAP features, click Yes.
    2. Enter the LDAP URI.
    3. For Base DN, enter the Distinguished Name from which the LDAP server searches for users.
    4. For Bind Username, enter the username for logging into LDAP services.
      Note: This username must have the permission to search within the provided DN.
    5. For Bind Password, enter the password that corresponds to the username.
    6. (Optional) For Encrypt Connection, click Yes to use encryption.
      Important: By default, Qumulo requires an encrypted connection to connect to LDAP (either LDAPS or StartTLS). If you disable this option to connect without TLS, you might expose credentials over your network.
  5. Click Save.

Note: To use encrypted connections, you must install a valid certificate for your LDAP server. For more information, see SSL: Install a Signed SSL Certificate.
