LDAP Configuration for HP Printers and Active Directory

I had to figure out how to configure LDAP on these HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M476 series with LDAP support.
The LDAP configuration was a tad bit different than I suspected.

For some reason the SSL function didn’t work, so I switched to normal, old-fashioned way of doing this on port 389.

LDAP Server: Fill in your Windows Domain Name.Extension
Server port: 389

verification: Simple

And here we go, username must be specified, not as username, but as user DN. so:

Username: cn=username,OU=Users, DC=Domain,DC=DomainExtension

The search path should be something like:
Path OU=Users,DC=DOMAIN,DC=DomainExtension
Match cn
e-mail mail

Note that you don’t use spaces in LDAP queries.

Now you can test your configuration.
Fill in some account that you know exists in your directory and hit the Test button.

Should work now.
Hope this helps you.
