I’‘ve just downloaded messenger today (19/4/05) and I’'m having a few problems with LDAP authentication. We are using OpenLdap 2.1.29 and messenger 2.1.2.
The problem, in a nut shell, is that we user virtual servers and our ldap directory is set up to handle uid’'s in the format of username@domain e.g.
Messenger doesn’'t seem to like anything after and includeing the @ symbol. If I set up and account with the format uid=username,ou=sales,ou=uk,ou=xyz.com,o=virtual_domain all works okay.
Another problem which could be related is that in the admin console in the user summary if displays the correct count for the number of users on the system but will only display in the userlist usernames which do not contain the @ symbol.
Any help greatfully received.
