Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  IBM WebSphere Application Server users of   *
    *                  federated repositories LDAP registry        *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The                                     *
    *                      LdapAdapter.authenticateWithPassword()  *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The LdapAdapter.authenticateWithPassword(...) method does not
    return the causal exception making it very difficult to
    determine the root cause for a failed LDAP user's
    attempt to bind for authentication.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code was updated to include the causal exception in any
    thrown exceptions from
    LdapAdapter.authenticateWithPassword(...).
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.5.5.16 and 9.0.5.1.  Please refer to the Recommended
