The IBM® DS8000® series includes the option to replace the locally based user ID and password administration with a centralized directory based approach. This offers 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 a centralized directory. It provides information that is required for implementing a DS8000 authentication approach that is based on the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP).

This edition applies particularly to the IBM DS8870 with Licensed Machine Code (LMC) 7.7.20.xx.xx or later.
