Friday Tips #32
By Chris Kawalek on Jun 14, 2013
Happy Friday! Our tip this week is about Oracle Secure Global Desktop and directory services.
What versions of Active Directory and LDAP does Oracle Secure Global Desktop support?
Answer from the Deployment Considerations for Oracle Secure Global Desktop white paper:
Active Directory authentication and LDAP authentication are supported on the following versions of Active Directory:
- Windows Server 2003
- Windows Server 2003 R2
- Windows Server 2008
- Windows Server 2008 R2
- Supported LDAP Directories
Oracle Secure Global Desktop supports version 3 of the standard LDAP protocol. You can use LDAP authentication with any LDAP version 3-compliant directory server. However, Oracle Secure Global Desktop only supports the following directory servers:
- Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition version 11gR1
- Microsoft Active Directory on Windows Server 2003, 2003 R2, 2008, and 2008 R2
- Oracle Internet Directory 11gR1 (all 11.1.1.x.0 releases)
Other directory servers might work, but are not supported.
For more detail, have a read through the User Authentication section of the documentation.
See you next week!
