LDAP Users\UserGroups as Portal Users\UserGroups

Hello friends,

I'm trying to learn administration of the Websphere Portal v6.1. We currently have a LDAP User Registry running on Windows. What we wanted to do is to have all those users viewable in the Websphere Portal Users and Groups section in the Administration section. So essentially, all the listed users and user groups will be composed of the user and usergroups we created in the Portal Admin section and the existing users and user groups we have in our LDAP User Registry.

Can anyone help me on this? what do I need to configure?

I have done a few research on my own and I've found some useful links:

http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/wpdoc/v6r0/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.wp.ent.doc/wpf/msad_ldap.html

and this...

http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/wpdoc/v6r0/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.wp.ent.doc/wpf/msad_ldap.html

Are these the right instructions I should follow?

I'm still not sure if thats really that I should do.

Any form of help would be appreciated. The LDAP Users registry is on Windows by the way.

Thanks,
Andres
