Use LDAP in Qumulo Core


Outlines how to configure LDAP in Qumulo Core


  • Cluster running Qumulo Core 2.12.1 or later


Enable Qumulo's LDAP service to manage file permissions and reference user UID and GID information in Qumulo Core.

  1. Login as the Qumulo admin account.
  2. Hover over the Cluster menu in the Web UI and click on LDAP.


  3. Click Edit on the LDAP Configuration screen.
  4. Click Yes under Use LDAP features.


  5. Fill in the following details:
    • LDAP URI: the URI for the LDAP server.
    • Base DN: the Distinguished Name from which the LDAP server searches for users.
    • Bind Username: the username used to log into LDAP services. Note that the username provided must have permission to search within the provided DN.
    • Bind Password: the password for the username provided.
    • Encrypt Connection: whether you wish encryption to be used.
      NOTE: By default, Qumulo requires an encrypted connection to connect to LDAP (either ldaps or startTLS). Disable this option to connect without TLS, potentially exposing credentials over the network.
  6. Specify whether your LDAP deployment uses encryption with the Encrypt Connection option. By default, this is enabled.
  7. Click Save.

NOTE: To use encrypted connections, you must install a valid certificate for your LDAP server. See the SSL: Install a Signed SSL Certificate article for additional details.


You should now be able to successfully configure LDAP in Qumulo Core.
