Nagios Network Analyzer – Authenticating and Importing Users with Active Directory and LDAP

This document describes how to integrate Nagios Network Analyzer with Active Directory (AD) or Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) to allow user authentication and validation with an AD or LDAP infrastructure through the Nagios Network Analyzer interface. This is helpful for system administrators by simplifying user management of large infrastructures and standardizing credentials needed for Network Analyzer by allowing  users to authenticate with their AD or LDAP credentials.

This is intended for Nagios administrators who want to allow users to authenticate with their Windows AD or LDAP credentials when logging into Nagios Network Analyzer.
