Enterprise Active Directory FAQs


1. How do I bind a LDAP application to the Pitt Domain?

A load-balanced VIP has been created so that applications only need to bind to a single interface to authenticate and query Active Directory. This IP provides load balancing and high availability in the case that any one server is unavailable.

To connect, the DNS name pittad.univ.pitt.edu should be entered in the server field. The access is based on LDAP over SSL so the port used should be 636/TCP.



The Information Technology Web site (technology.pitt.edu) is the central location for online information regarding computing services at the University. Procedures, policies, and guidelines along with new service announcements, security alerts, and system outage notifications are also available.
