Have you used LDAP in a previous version ?
We are using LDAP on V6.8.6.
You need to setup the LDAP server IP address, LDAP username with the correct ou mapping eg, cn=wwuser,ou=admin,o=company, password, Base DN to Users eg ou=users,o=company
We are using eDirectory LDAP so we have a lookup filter:
and a Novell eDirectory network address attribute of:
This will ask the LDAP server for each User logged in, their network address and their login time.
Let me know if that helps.
Witch Version of Webgateway 7 are you using? Are you using Server 2003, Server 2008 or Server 2008R2
It´s working fine within my WW7 Cluster.
Authentication Server Details.
ldap Server String: ldap://192.x.x.x:389
Enable LDAP version 3 is enabled
Base distinguished name for user objects: dc=testdomain,dc=test
Map user dame to DN: is enabled
Filter expression: (samaccountname=%u)
Get user attributes: is enabled
User attributes to retreive: cn
Get group attributes: is enabled
Base distinguished name for group objects: dc=testdomain,dc=test
Group attributes to retreive: cn
Now you only have to define the Group mappings under Role mapping.
Thanks That was what I was looking for, If you don't mind I have another quick question, in requards to LDAP authentication;
are the settings the same for User Authentication to LDAP (User Database)
Thank you immensely for your help, I was able to get everything configured
Keep in mind that eDirectory "Authentication" is different than LDAP authentication.
True LDAP authentication binds the username and password and tries to actually logon to the LDAP server.
eDirectory "Authentication" has a service account that queries eDir with the IP address of the client and eDir responds back with a user of the person last seen at that IP address.
I just wanted to make that distiction, but glad to hear you got it working.
will be eDirectory Authentication possible for managing administrative Accounts?
If that is all you want to do, then yes. Use LDAP authentication for that.
I was unlcear on which authentication you were referring to. I thought you meant proxy user authentication.
LDAP authentication should work fine for administration.
I am also having problem with LDAP settings, but this time it is on the proxy authentication. The configuration page is the same as with the proxy authentication, and I applied the recommended setting as specified above, but it is still not working... Can you please provide me information on how to set this up properly, I could not find any information in the product guide and in the KBs about this. Thanks!
