With system firmware level R1.7, released June, 2010, the IBM® TS7700 Virtualization Engine introduced support for LDAP security. TS7700 firmware level R2.0, released June, 2011, enhanced the implementation to include login restrictions for IBM service access.
With support of LDAP authentication, IBM provides the customer with the ability to effectively manage access to TS7700 systems. With LDAP support enabled, any user that attempts to access the TS7700 must pass authentication by the external, customer managed, LDAP server, rather than being authenticated by the storage system itself.
TS7700 firmware level R3.0, released November, 2012, enhanced the LDAP implementation to include support for direct communication with Microsoft Active Directory.
