This paper describes the Default Schema method (also known as schema-free integration).

• Minimum login flexibility requires a fully distinguished name, a password, and membership in a group recognized by iLO.

iLO3 v1.20 and later versions also support the Kerberos method for integrating iLO with AD. That method provides a single sign-on.
