Active Directory / LDAP

If you are using Windows Active Directory (hereafter referred to as "AD"), you can add your NAS to your AD domain.


  • Windows Active Directory: After successfully adding your NAS to an Active Directory domain, you can then configure access rights using domain users, domain groups and shared folders settings using the Access Control app. Active Directory users can then use their own Active Directory accounts to log in and access the NAS.
  • Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP): LDAP, also known as Lightweight Directory Access Protocol is mainly used for unified management of accounts and passwords. Using LDAP can more efficiently manage user authentication or computer resource permissions across the enterprise. Users can easily add an ASUSTOR NAS to their existing LDAP server, providing easier ways to help manage productivity.
