How to install certificates for secure LDAP authentication in NuGenesis LMS - WKB53634

Article number: 53634

OBJECTIVE or GOAL

Install one or more certificates in a NuGenesis LMS server, in order to support user authentication with secure LDAP (LDAPS).

ENVIRONMENT

  • NuGenesis 9 LMS
  • NuGenesis 8 LMS
  • NuGenesis 8 ELN
  • LDAPS authentication was, or will be, configured in NuGenesis LMS

PROCEDURE

Files needed for this procedure:

ImportCert_LMS_r6.bat

ListCert_LMS_r5.bat

RemoveCert_LMS_r5.bat

  1. Download the attached batch files to the LMS server.
  2. With Admin rights, open a command prompt window.
  3. Run the ImportCert_LMS_r6.bat file with the file name as the first parameter. Example:
    • ImportCert_LMS_r6.bat C:\certs\LDAPS\rootCA.crt
  4. The batch file will use the Keytool program in the LMS server's embedded Java runtime environment to import the certificate into Java's certificate store.
  5. Repeat step 3 if there are other certificates to import.
  6. Close the command prompt window.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

NuGenesis 8 LMS does not use the Windows certificate store for LDAPS certificates. Certificate storage is within a binary file in the Java runtime environment.
