  4. Under Authentication, select the type of LDAP implementation for your system, either:
    • Active Directory: An implementation of LDAP directory services by Microsoft.
    • OpenLDAP: An open-source implementation of LDAP directory services.
  5. For the server Connection, Query, and Data Mapping settings, enter or select the new values in the appropriate fields. See Directory Services Settings for details.

  7. To test the connection to the defined directory server, click the Test Settings button.


    • If you get the message "Anonymous Connection Succeeded," this means that HMP has found the server, but the username and/or password is most likely wrong.
    • If you get the message "Connection Test Succeeded," this means that the server IP address, port, username, and password are correct. A list of the first 10 users and groups are displayed, as shown in the following example.
