Testing an LDAP Provider

Using cURL, you can test your LDAP configuration as follows:

  1. Open the command line on an external client.


    cURL is not a built-in command line utility in Windows.

  2. Enter the following command to list the contents of the directory tmp/test:

    curl -i -k -u ldap_user : password -X GET / 'https:// gateway_host :8443/ gateway_path / cluster_name /webhdfs/api/v1/tmp/test?op=LISTSTATUS

    If the directory exists, a content list displays; if the user cannot be authenticated, the request is rejected with an HTTP status of 401 unauthorized.
