SSL connection between ADS and EP trial


I have installed Enterprise portal full java edition (trial version) in a Windows XP machine. I have also successfully configured ADS for user authentication with EP (Netweaver 2004s SP9 version). Now, the requirement is to have a writeable connection with the Active Directory Server so that users in EP can modify their credentials on ADS. Is a SSL connection between EP 6.4 and ADS absolutely necessary for this? Also I need to know if the trial version supports SSL or not. Whenever I am choosing dataSourceConfigurations_ads_writeable_db.xml from the configtool, and check the SSL checkbox, the "Test Connection" and "Test Authentication" button is greying out.

The WebAS version is 7.0 and I have configured Visual admin to start ssl and keystore service.

Points are guaranteed on good answers.

    Hi Subhabrata Mukhuti,

    You could change the user's information accessing the "User Administration >> Identity Management". The user, that you configured at UME Configuration[1], must have the Administration Domain permission at the LDAP Server. After that you are able to change the LDAP information using the Portal.

    If you are using the Microsoft Active Directory as LDAP server you only be able to change the password if the connection between the Portal and LDAP Server is under SSL.

    I hope this help,

      Thanks for the answer Alcides. It is helpful, but I also need to know specifically <i>if Netweaver 2004s SP9 Full Java <u>Trial version</u> supports SSL or not</i>.

      I have already created a domain user in AD with permission in all branches of the ADS. I am using this user to connect to the ADS from Visual Administrator. It is working fine with a read-only connection through port 389. But whenever I am changing over to a writeable connection and checking SSL, the options for "Test Connection" and "Test Authentication are greying out.

      I have tested with a writeable connection without SSL- it is allowing users to be created in the portal, but when I logoff and then log back in, the users are nowhere to be seen!

      I am following the instruction from It advices to change the connection settings from Visual Administrator and not from System Configuration-> UM Configuration.

      Can someone please help me?
