Retrieve Security Group Information

To retrieve the security groups using OmniGroupServer, follow these steps.

To retrieve security groups

  1. Open the OmniGroupServer configuration file.
  2. In the [Repositories] section, create a repository to store the groups. For example:

    [Repositories]
    Number=1
    0=LDAP
  3. In the new section, configure a task to extract the information from the directory using LDAP. You can use the following configuration parameters (for a complete list of configuration parameters, refer to the OmniGroupServer Reference).

    GroupServerLibrary The path (including the file name) to the library file that allows the group server to access the repository. Use the LDAP group server library.
    LDAPServer The host name or IP address of the machine that hosts the LDAP directory.
    LDAPPort The port to use to access the LDAP directory.
    LDAPBase The distinguished name of the search base.
    LDAPType The type of LDAP server (for example, Microsoft Active Directory).
    LDAPSecurityType The type of security to use when communicating with the LDAP server (for example, SSL or TLS).
    LDAPBindMethod The type of authentication to use to access the LDAP directory. To log on as the same user that is running OmniGroupServer, set this parameter to NEGOTIATE.

    For example:

    [LDAP]
    GroupServerLibrary=ogs_ldap.dll
    LDAPServer=myLDAPserver
    LDAPPort=636
    LDAPBase=DC=DOMAIN,DC=COM
    LDAPType=MAD
    LDAPSecurityType=SSL
    LDAPBindMethod=NEGOTIATE
  4. (Optional) You can set further parameters to define the schedule for the task. You can set these parameters in the task section (to schedule only the current task), or in the [Default] section (to provide a default schedule for all OmniGroupServer tasks).

    GroupServerStartTime

    The time when a task starts.
    GroupServerRepeatSecs The number of seconds that elapse before the Group Server repeats a task.

    For example:

    [LDAP]
    GroupServerLibrary=ogs_ldap.dll
    LDAPServer=myLDAPserver
    LDAPPort=636
    LDAPBase=DC=DOMAIN,DC=COM
    LDAPType=MAD
    LDAPSecurityType=SSL
    LDAPBindMethod=NEGOTIATE
    GroupServerStartTime=12:00
    GroupServerRepeatSecs=3600
  5. Save and close the OmniGroupServer configuration file.
