Note: A new draft version of this publication is now available
Starting with release 4.2, the IBM® System Storage™ DS8000® series offers the ability to replace the locally based user ID and password administration with a centralized directory based approach. This release also allows a single sign-on capability for multiple DS8000 servers and possibly other servers in your environment.
This IBM Redpaper™ publication helps DS8000 storage administrators understand the concepts and benefits of directories. It provides information that is required for implementing a DS8000 authentication approach based on the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP).
