4.8.1. Managing Accounts in Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)ΒΆ

By default, SIMP provides a LDAP server for centralized account management and to assist with meeting common policy requirements for account lockout and invalidation.

As of EL8, OpenLDAP has been removed from support but 389-DS has become available and appears to be the path forward for general LDAP support.

As such, all SIMP systems running EL8+ will provide 389-DS as the default LDAP server. Client system configurations have been tested to support either system as a LDAP server.
