AD Integration - Login problem

Haree Explorer
Currently Being Moderated
Hi all,

I have created an user in AD as:

Username    : test.user (test dot user)
Displayname : test user (test space user)

Then created a group BIusers and added test.user as a member into it.

I have imported users and group from AD to console. *(AD users - username not displayname)*

For example: test.user has been imported

I was able to login  into answers as test user , but not as test.user

Kindly help me to overcome this.

Thanks,
Haree.

    I think you might have configured ad settings wrong.
    Check your config with this link

    Are you certain there isn't another user with username=test user in AD? Also, when you configured AD Authentication, can you see test.user in Admin Console? I'm assuming you can since you mapped that user to a group in EM after configuring AD but confirm anyway.

    Hi Veeravalli,


    Thanks for the reply and sorry for the delay.

    I have imported two users from AD. For eg : test.user and sample.user

    Projects allocation to these users are maintained by an table.

    sample.user has no projects, but test.user has allocated projects.

    I was able to login to analytics as sample.user but not as test.user

    But in test instance (Windows) , I was able to login as both users. Data restriction also works fine.

    Login problem is only in production (IBM AIX)

    Kindly help me ASAP.

    Thanks,
    Haree

    Are you able to see the test.user under Users and Groups in weblogic console in the Production instance ( IBM AIX ) ?

    Please let us know.

    Thanks,

    I have used sAMAccountName to import users and cn to import groups. Then in EM in security provider configuration given virtualize=true,
    Then restarted the admin server and biserver.

    Now test.user is able to login.
