    The problem using LDAP authentication

    956806
      hi, all

      I use LDAP to authenticate the users and let them log on BIEE.
      However, BIEE returns these errors after I typed the userID who is already in the LDAP server and its password:

      Unable to Log In
      Odbc driver returned an error (SQLDriverConnectW).

      Error Details
      Error Codes: OPR4ONWY:U9IM8TAC
      State: 08004. Code: 10018. [NQODBC] [SQL_STATE: 08004] [nQSError: 10018] 拒绝访问请求的连接。 [53002] LDAP 搜索失败: No such object。 (08004)

      Eagering for your help!

      Thanks a lot!

          Hi,

          I think this is a Genuine Message from your LDAP which indicates that 'The user object was not found' in the LDAP. I guess, may be the issue is that this user object was not found in the userBaseDN which you might have given. Hope the following suggestions might help

          1. Set the User Base DN, one level up or to the top of the hierarchy.

          2. Try connecting to the LDAP Global Catalog at port '3268' as it has all the copies of the objects.

          3. Are you able to browse your LDAP with any simple client like openLDAP from this server?

          4. How about the "User Search Scope" in the provider? Try setting it to 'SubTree' instead of just 'One Level'

          Hope this helps.

          Thank you,
