vCloud Cell to LDAP Connections Test

Cloud Director supports LDAP integration for user authorization. You can use an LDAP service to provide a directory of users and groups to import into an organization. When an imported LDAP user logs in to vCloud Director, vCloud Director checks the credentials of the user against the LDAP directory. If the credentials are accepted, vCloud Director creates a user account and logs the user in to the system.

This test reports the number of connections that are currently established between the vCloud Director and the LDAP server.
