Hey guys, yet another clueless Active Directory admin who knows nothing about LDAP. I have been searching the forums for quite awhile now and have tried many different suggestions, usually by pasting and then editing it my specifics settings. Nothing has worked so far, and its starting to drive me nuts! Below are the settings I have used as well as the places that I receive errors.
Base DN: dc=domainname,dc=local - (For this the domain is domainname.local)
Administrator DN: cn=spark,cn=users,dc=gc,dc=local - (I created a domain admin named “sparK” in the users countainer which is in its default location. When I test this setting he successfully authenticates!)
Username field: sAMAccountName
Search Fields: Blank
User Filter: ((objectCategory=Person)(memberOf=CN=users,DC=domainname,DC=local)) - At this point I try testing the user mapping and it brings an error saying “No users were found using the specified configuration. Try changing the base DN, user filter or uername field”
It however allows me to continue, so I do
Group Field: cn
Memeber Field: member
Description Field: description
At this point I hit test settings and get the following error “No Groups were found using the specified configuration. Try changing the base DN, group filter or member field”
However, I am hopeful so I keep going. I was able to successfully authenticate my administrative user in the first step, so I would assume that when it asks me to Add Administrator, this step should work?!
WRONG - I try and add in “spark” or even just “administrator” and I get a “No username was provided or the specified username was not found.”
So guys… please help I’m thinking about crying.
