Friday Tips #32

Happy Friday! Our tip this week is about Oracle Secure Global Desktop and directory services.

Question:

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!
