Exchange 2010 authentication w/Secure LDAP

We are successfully authenticating users through the LTM/APM using LDAP in our AAA server. We need to switch to using Secure LDAP. What is required to ge this working? Simply chaning the port on the AAA server to the secure port does not do it. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Are you running version 10 of BIG-IP? I believe you need to set up a pool of LDAP servers and a virtual using serverssl, then use that VIP address as your AAA server. Check out this video:

    Yes - running 10.2.3. First time seeing that video... we'll check it out. Thanks!



    The configuration for Secure LDAP as described in the video works great for us. One question on that... it seems that there might be clear text credentials between the two VIPs. Is this a concern and if so, has anyone addressed this situation?

    Quick update on this... we ended up moving to version 11 with iApps and Secure LDAP is built in to that version. There is no need in version 11 to create a separate vertual server for Secure LDAP. It seems to work great.
