I am in the process of trying to add MS Active Directory to my Weblogic setup, i am using version 10.3.5.0.
The steps i have done so far:
i have added a new security provider call MS Active Directory i have added the Principal:
CN=WUK-LDAP,OU=Service Accounts,OU=Service Roles,OU="SomeNameHere",OU=WOS Operating Companies,DC=DS,DC="SomeNameHere",DC=COM
(I have subbed some information out as its sensitive)
The credential which is the password for user WUK-LDAP
the UserBaseDN and GroupBaseDN are the same:
OU="SomeNameHere",OU=WOS Operating Companies,DC=DS,DC="Some Name Here",DC=COM
when i have restarted i get the groups back over 1000+ but no users,
Can anyone suggest why?
Please check if you have followed the below steps to setup and test Microsoft Active Directory with WebLogic Server 11g.
Active Directory Configuration
The best way to know whether or not WLS is talking to AD is to login with the default weblogic account and go to the security realm and click on the Users and Groups tab. There should be users and groups listed there that were imported from AD. If those are not there, WLS is not talking to AD. A nice tool to have available while you are doing this testing is this LDAP browser which allows you to connect to AD directly and browse the AD objects. It is a very useful tool. You can download it from http://jxplorer.org/
If the new AD user will be used to perform administrative tasks, the user must be a member of the Administrators group in AD. See the following WLS documentation.
