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

Article number: 53634

OBJECTIVE or GOAL

To 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 has been, or will be, configured in NuGenesis LMS

PROCEDURE

  1. Download the attached Batch files to the LMS server
  2. Open a command prompt window with Admin rights
  3. Run the ImportCert_ELN_r4.bat file with the file name as the first parameter.  Example:
    • ImportCert_ELN_r4.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.  The certificate storage is within a binary file in the Java runtime environment.
