Setting up LDAP-based authentication the the NetScaler GUI is usually one of the first things I do on a NetScaler build…except on NetScaler 10.5 – it looks like this feature is broken NS 10.5 build 50.10 nc.
- Once configured, AD integrated authentication works for SSH connections….but not web GUI
- If you create a local user with a long, complex ‘dummy’ password, check the box for ‘Enable External Authentication’, AD integrated authentication will then work for that user. Here’s the problem with that:
- The dummy password is valid for login thus the reason to make it long and complex
- I don’t want to have to create a local account for every admin to logon to the NS
