Directory with BMC Remedy ARS. Active Directory is very strong concept. It
keeps all the record of the internal CIs. To create vendor form we need to
integrate AD with ARS. For example users in the organizations are added via
AD. This users will automatically added in to ARS via vendor form. This
document gives the detail steps of integration. The trainee engineers are the
main audience.

Step 3 : On new window click on Change-->More--> and Type your domain name here. You
can see in below screenshot.

In my server I already configured Active Directory and integrated it with ARS. So configure
AD name in win 3 to integrate AD.
Step 4 : Your AD configuration is done. Now check your domain name.
My Computer-->System Properties
On this screen you can see domain name. Make sure that same domain name is there that you
did configured. If not check the above procedure and configure it again.
Now your AD configuration is done.

Above screenshot shows the input required to submit LDAP form. Same details as filled in
Spoon. Apart from that, Using Secure Socket Layer : No, LDAP Date-Time Format :
Generalized Time, Failover Time : 5 and in ARDBC Plug in Cache Enable : No. Save the
form. After ARDBC configuration restart the services.
Next Section will explain the details about vendor form creation to integrate with AD.

Section D : Vendor form creation along with AD.


AD contains large amount of data. We can get huge information from AD in to
vendor form such as computers, contact, group, printers, user etc. We will create vendor
form that will give the details of users present in AD. After restarting of ARS services we can
see ARSYS.ARDBC>LDAP option in available vendor names.
Step 1: Open Developer Studio. Go to Server-->All Objects-->Forms-->New Vendor Form.

Above screenshot shows the different vendor available to create vendor form. Among that
select ARSYS.ARDBC.LDAP and click Next.
Step 2 : Next you can see available different vendor tables. Select last one user table as
" ldap://M0703/DC=vaijanath,DC=m0703,DC=com??sub?(objectclass=user)". There are
different tables in AD. We can select any of the table to get data of that table. I selected user
table for demonstration. The below screenshot explain in detail about vendor tables in AD.

In above screenshot we can see different tables present in AD. We can select any of the table
and create its vendor form to get data from that table.
Step 3 : Click on Next button and select the fields that you want to see on vendor form and
then click Finish. Now your vendor form is ready that will show the details of users in your
organization.
Testing : Create new user in AD-->Users and check its entry in your vendor form. Later
delete users from AD and see the vendor form.

In this way we can configure the Active directory with your BMC Remedy ARS.
