Setting Advanced LDAP Connection Properties in Nexus Repository Manager

Nexus Repository Manager 2.13 and newer allow setting advanced LDAP connection settings using properties. Use this advanced option when a specific setting is not exposed in the user interface.

The properties that can be set are implementation specific and apply to every LDAP Server connection configured. Consult the provider documentation to determine the available properties and their meaning.

    You can specify the service name as an argument after /install:

     

    c:\nexusdir>nexus.exe /install nexus-service
