HMC BMC Port Password Management

We need to configure LDAP to manage our BMC Port login on PowerHMC. This is an audit issue and hence I had opened S/W ( TS003831906 ) and H/W call ( 75254,L6Q,000 ). Its been a long time without any resolution. I tried to configure LDAP from the BMC menu but looks like it does not support or work. Based on this I had opened a call. Any method either sync HMC hscroot passwd or LDAP is really required so that we can manage the admin(hscroot) password.

    Hi Ravindra,

    BMC on CR1 does support LDAP. Our support team is providing inputs via the Hardware ticket. Please let us know if that addresses your requirement.
