LDAP passthrough authentication fails when anonymous bind is turned off.

user1937458 Newbie
Currently Being Moderated
I have an LDAP resouce adapter setup in IDM (SUN directory server) that connects using a User DN and password.
We also authenticate our users into IDM via LDAP.

Since we had the adapter setup with User DN (distinguished name) it seemed that we would not do any anonymous binds to LDAP. However when anonymous bind was turned off on the directory server, the users cannot log into IDM.

Does the passthrough authentication not use the settings of the adapter to test the user trying to log into IDM?

Any help is appreciated.
