Enterprise Active Directory FAQs

LDAP

1. How do I bind a LDAP application to the Pitt Domain?

A load-balanced VIP has been created so that applications only need to bind to a single interface to authenticate and query Active Directory. This IP provides load balancing and high availability in the case that any one server is unavailable.

To connect, the DNS name pittad.univ.pitt.edu should be entered in the server field. The access is based on LDAP over SSL so the port used should be 636/TCP.
