Ambari Server Connecting to multiply LDAP/AD hosts

Cloudera Employee

When installing the software for Ambari using ambari-server setup-ldap we input a complex configuration to declare the ldap connection. There is a parameter --ldap-url which we set to an AD host. Can this parameter take a commented list? The actual question is how do point the ambari-server at more than one AD host to support AD failure?

Hi @Will Dailey,

It is possible to configure the secondary LDAP server to handle the AD Failure scenario.

--ldap-secondary-url is the parameter(optional) which will take additional AD host in the ldap-setup command line arguments.

--ldap-url=LDAP_URL   				Primary url for LDAP   
--ldap-secondary-url=LDAP_SECONDARY_URL		Secondary url for LDAP
