    Hello community,

    we tried to set up LDAP Remote User Management for our HMC's but failed with the implementation.
    As there has to be a special attribute in the users LDAP profile like "decription=taskrole", it it is not practical to us and I think to many other companies too.
    We are using application roles to allow users authentication for applications and services.

    My question to you is now: How did you integrate LDAP in your HMC environment?

    I could not create almost 100 users with different task roles for each of our hmc's to use LDAP without remote user management and I can not change the ldap profile of 90.000 ldap accounts to grant access for 100 users.

    Thanks for your answers in advance.
    Best regard

    Our HMC access doesn't change to often so we just script it via command line... chhmcusr, mkhmcusrrmhmcusr

    mkhmcusr -i "name=userid,description=User_Fullname,taskrole=hmcsuperadmin,authentication_type=ldap,remote_user_name=userid,remote_webui_access=1"
