Configuration of ADS and ADAM in EP 6.0

Dear All,

I would like to know whether can we define two different LDAP servers within portal. One LDAP(ADS Server) for kerberos authentication while other for authorization (rendering group information) which is a separate ADAM server.

The reason being I can see single LDAP server under System config > UM Config > LDAP.

This will enable proper fallback (To Basis userid/password) whenever user fails on Kerberos, specifically when we have defined ADAM server in LDAP settings.

Thanks for help

    Hi Abhitab,

    The short answer is no, you cannot mix LDAP and ABAP data sources for information about the same users. I spent a long time trying this, because I wanted Windows authentication but with Roles coming from R/3.

    What you can do is to configure the UME for type ABAP (which will give the Basis fallback situation you desire), and seperately configure the JAAS login stack in Visual Administrator to allow authentication using Kerberos and ADAM. For the ADAM authentication, you will have to write your own JAAS module, but this is only about 12 lines of code different to the standard JAAS template project.

    Best regards,
