Q1: No, there is no AD within SAP systems, it is a microsoft windows product

Q2: Microsoft [Active Directory|], product to centrally manage windows users and more

Q3: stored seperately, Active Directory comes with an LDAP

Q4: CCMS is the management/monitoring within SAP, UME is the user management in SAP (used by j2ee systems like EP), kerberos is an encrypted authentication method, used by windows products, for example AD, you can setup kerberos for a EP with spnego, check this post: [SSO with active directory|]

Q5: you can use kerberos authentication to you EP and SSO with saplogontickets from EP to the ECC

Hi again

Yes, you can attach a LDAP to the ECC as well, but i am pretty sure you cannot use kerberos (single sign on) directly. Just use transaction LDAP ))

See this note: 188371 - Configuring the LDAP Connector

For more information, please goto and browse for LDAP, also search the sap notes and sdn as well. There is already lots of information available there.

Best regards, Michael
