Windows Server 2008 – Active Directory certified for the BC-LDAP-USR Directory Interface for User Management

On May the 8th Windows Server 2008 Active Directory from Microsoft received the certification for the SAP NetWeaver AS – Directory Interface for User Management via LDAP (BC-LDAP-USR)[1] interface. The certification encompasses compatibility test with Application Server ABAP as well as compatibility/integration test with NetWeaver Portal User Management Engine. 

Using the SAP’s directory interfaces lets you now also leverage user information stored in Microsoft Active Directory 2008.

You can see the list of solutions from Microsoft that are certified for SAP interfaces here.

In the whitepaper Integration of SAP Central User Administration into Microsoft Active Directory I have described how the ABAP usermanagement can be configured to synchronize information stored in Microsoft Active Directory.

  • Hi Andre,

    It’s great that the new Microsoft product is now certified.

    Is there any prospect of SAP updating the RSLDAPSYNC_USER code?  The LDAP transaction allows connection options to be set (e.g. ignore referrals), but there’s no way of passing these options to the SAP-standard programs & function modules. Perhaps a set of options could be included with the Server definition in txn LDAP? This would have helped me a lot when implementing a recent customer project.

    It seems that SAP’s ABAP-based LDAP code is still stuck in 2002, but a few simple updates like this would greatly improve it.

    Best regards,

  • Hi,
    Nice document. But this document is not an friendly document as it was given generic not clear. The standard report RSLDAPSYNC_USER stucks with ADS but not with other ldap server. There is mapping issues i seen and not clear for all. It would be great if you can show the mapping process in LDAPMAP for executing standard report on vanila installation.
