Panorama LDAP Login UI

L0 Member

Hello

 

I am trying to configure panorama to use ldap login for the UI. I've followed the article below, but still get invalid username and password. I've setup authentication profile and administrator to my AD group. Not sure why I can't get this function to work.

Hello @Danny-SRNA

 

thank you for the post!

 

The best way to drill down into root cause of authentication failure is to look into logs. Please run this command from Panorama's CLI: less mp-log authd.log. Based on the logs, I would focus on next troubleshooting steps.

 

On the general note, please check below:

- In LDAP profile, is Base DN covering an AD OU where your login account is located? Are Bind DN credentials valid?

- In LDAP profile, are LDAP servers reachable? Can firewall resolve their DNS record?

- In Authentication Profile, under "Advanced" does "Allow List" has "all" configured?

- Is account you are using to authenticate to Panorama GUI, configured under: Panorama > Administrators? Does the account have correct Authentication Profile configured?

 

Kind Regards

Pavel

You can't use AD group to log into firewall or Panorama with LDAP.

If you use RADIUS and vendor specific attributes then it is possible.

With LDAP you need to specify every user by username under Administrators for login to work.
