APAR status

  • Closed as Permanent restriction.

Error description

  • It has been identified that on the Active Directory repository
    setup page, the field 'Login DN' can be confused as to it's
    proper usage (connection testing).
    When setting up an Active Directory repository, entering a full
    Distinguished Name (DN) in the "Login DN" field causes the test
    connection to fail.
    Both the 'Login DN' field and it's associated password field
    are directly tied to the "Test connection" button and are not
    used at any other time.
    

Local fix

  • Use a Windows account name (also known as sAMAccountName) in
    the 'Login DN' field.
    

Problem summary

  • This issue will not be fixed for now. We will suggest that
    customers use the LDAP authentication module instead.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This issue will not be fixed for now. We will suggest that
    customers use the LDAP authentication module instead.
