Configuring a vCenter Single Sign On Identity Source using LDAP with SSL

So, the Fusion related videos that were mentioned in our earlier post have been delayed. Thus we must apologize to all of our fans who were waiting for these videos to appear. We will try to upload these videos as early as possible in the new year.

In the meantime, we do have a new video today for all of our fans interested in vSphere 5.1 related content.

In this video tutorial we provide a quick demonstration showing the steps to configure an Identity Source in vCenter Single Sign On to use a secured LDAP over SSL (LDAPS) connection as per the written instructions contained within VMware Knowledge Base article Configuring a vCenter Single Sign On Identity Source using LDAP with SSL (2041378).

This is appropriate in secure environments to encrypt all LDAP traffic on between vCenter Server and the authorizing Identity Source.

Note: This video tutorial is a general how-to guide. Consult with the Directory Administrators in your organization for specific procedures. The steps in this video assume that the Domain Controller in question has a valid certificate available for Exporting for Server Authentication. If it is not available in the Personal > Certificates tab, you need to start by making that certificate available.

Note: For best viewing results, ensure that the 720p setting is selected and view in full screen mode.
