Option 1 (Preferred)

Add a container (i.e., Group) only for SecurityCenter users and allow existing Active Directory users to become members of the newly created group. Use the Distinguished Name (DN) of this group as the “Search Base”. For example:

CN=SecurityCenter,DC=target,DC=example,DC=com

Save the changes and new users who are members of this group will be able to log in. No restart is required.

Step One:

  • Log in as an admin user.
  • Choose System -> Configuration -> LDAP

  • Log out as the admin user and then log in as the organizational user who will be managing the user in question.
  • Create the new user and when entering the LDAP “Search String” enter “=*”:
