Great news LDAP users, we have updated the IBM DS8870 LDAP authentication Redbooks publication.
It is available at :
The Tivoli Integrated Portal previously required, has been replaced by Jazz for Service Management.
The book illustrates how to configure LDAP services for the DS8870 with IBM Jazz for Service Management (JazzSM)
and Tivoli Storage Productivity Center.
LDAP Authentication for the IBM DS8870
The major difference with basic authentication is that the DS8000 user IDs (as used by the DS CLI or the DS GUI) are no longer locally managed and stored at the HMC. Instead they are managed and stored in an LDAP managed directory server.
The HMC cannot directly communicate with the LDAP server. For DS8870 LDAP authentication, Tivoli® Storage Productivity Center v5.2 or later is required and must be configured to use LDAP for single sign-on support. The authentication service is provided by Jazz™ for Service Management, which is included with Tivoli Storage Productivity Center and must be installed from the Tivoli Storage Productivity Center installation program.
The Authentication Server is provided by the Tivoli Storage Productivity Center 5.2. Tivoli Storage Productivity Center also includes the WebSphere Integrated Solution (WIS) console. WIS is used to administer and manage the authentication server.
The authentication process is depicted below.
