LDAP Authentication Configuration for FortiVoice Administrators


The FortiVoice unit works with LDAP servers to authenticate the administrator accessing the unit. This recipe guides you through the process of configuring LDAP authentication on the FortiVoice unit.

This recipe uses MS Server 2012 Active Directory as an example LDAP server and FortiVoice firmware v 3.0.1 or later. This recipe also assumes you have created an Administrator profile.
For information on how to create an administrator profile, see the FortiVoice Enterperise Phone System Administration Guide.
