Subject RE: [users@httpd] mod_auth_ldap and Exchange 5.5
Date Fri, 30 May 2003 15:52:45 GMT
Thanks Jason!

We aren't moved over to Active Directory just yet.  Just using my Exchange
server right now, until our upgrade to AD is complete.  I currently have
anonymous searches enabled, so binding isn't required to do my search, and
mod_auth_ldap is aparrently finding the user logging in.  When I enter a
bogus user I get:

[User not found] [No such Object] 

in my error.log file.  But with a valid user, it is saying invalid

I'm thinking it has to do with the binding of the user that is logging in,
to verify the password. Or am I way wrong?  Any ideas?

Are you using a DN to bind to active directory? I have a line like this in
my config:

AuthLDAPBindDN "CN=BindUser,OU=SomeOU,DC=somedomain,DC=com"
AuthLDAPBindPassword SomePassword

Subject: [users@httpd] mod_auth_ldap and Exchange 5.5

Hello everyone!  I am having a difficult time to get my Apache 2.0 server to
authenticate to my M$ Exchange Server via LDAP.

I have loaded the module 'mod_auth_ldap" as well as 'mod_ldap', and have all
the libraries for OpenLDAP (I believe).  But I just can't authenticate.

At first, my error.log was showing unknown user, but, after fixing my
LDAPURL, was able to complete my search.  So, I know it's attaching and
performing the search.  But, when I give it proper credentials, it comes
back saying:

[date] [warn] [client a.b.c.d] auth_ldap authenticate: user apaxson
authentication failed; URI /secure [ldap_simple_bind_s() to check user
credentials failed] [Invalid credentials]

I know it's doing a proper search, but can't seem to bind as me.  Has anyone
had this problem, or maybe give me a direction?  I tried looking at the
source code, but my knowledge of C is near nothing.
