Synopsis

  • Create, modify or erase directory services configurations. There is no facility to SSL certificates at this time. Use the FlashBlade GUI for this additional configuration work.

  • If updating a directory service and i(bind_password) is provided this will always cause a change, even if the password given isn’t different from the current. This makes this part of the module non-idempotent..

The base DN should specify DC= for each domain component and multiple DCs should be separated by commas.

bind_user

string

Sets the user name that can be used to bind to and query the directory.
