Hi, Pandora FMS Team
I'm using the Pandora FMS for a week now and I'm very satisfied regarding its features, the ease of use and the intuitive web interface. Everything seems to work as close as what I have with the combination of a Nagios and a Cacti implementation, but glued on the same tool. Awesome!
The LDAP integration is working flawlessly as well and the settings are as trivial as other PHP based applications. The same challenges faced here was already overcome in another implementations (e.g. Cacti). I'm even using the LDAPS feature with self signed certificates and I don't think it would be a big deal to change it to signed ones.
But as far as I'm using the Pandora FMS, I wasn't able to get the Searching User working. Since there's no way to set this on the web interface, I assume that it's not possible to be done and the authentication used by Pandora FMS is performed by binding the inserted user directly on the LDAP server.
So, have you considered put the Searching User option in order to make the bind from this user and then get the login information?
