This paper tells you how to integrate HP Integrated Lights-Out 3 (iLO 3) processors with Microsoft® Windows® Active Directory (AD) software to streamline configuration and avoid possible security issues. It describes how to validate the directory after you finish the integration. The rest of this paper refers to iLO 3 simply as iLO.

Integrating iLO with AD lets you have the same level of security as when you log into a Windows environment. Using iLO with AD lets you set up group access to iLO processors. AD passes to iLO a list of groups that contain the authenticated user. iLO compares the AD group list with the iLO database. iLO uses a group match to build a list of authorized privileges for the authenticated user. 

There are two LDAP methods for integrating iLO with AD: the HP Extended Schema method and the Default Schema method. This paper describes the Default Schema method (also known as schema-free integration). It is the most convenient way to integrate iLO with AD. It lets you configure the iLO software for two levels of login flexibility: 

• Minimum login flexibility requires a fully distinguished name, a password, and membership in a group recognized by iLO.

• Better login flexibility requires a login name combined with user context. 

iLO3 v1.20 and later versions also support the Kerberos method for integrating iLO with AD. That method provides a single sign-on.

You can do automated schema-free integration using the Lights-Out Migration Utility, manual schema-free integration using the iLO web interface, or automated Kerberos integration using the Kerberos web interface.
