I did not figure-out the cause of why I am getting this and I did not fix this. But I figured out a work-around for this. Thought might help the community.
I did not provide the SECURITY_AUTHENTICATION attribute. So it took the default of the server configured and it succeeded in authenticating the user Entry.
What I will do next is to figure out what the default authentication is, for my server and try and pass it.
Hope this helps some one out there.
I am new to openLDAP. I am configuring it (version: OpenLDAP: slapd 2.3.27) on a Linux machine to use with our Web Application (java). When I try and make a connection I am getting the following error.
[4/7/08 10:42:01:887 EDT] 00000026 SystemErr R at com.sun.jndi.ldap.sasl.LdapSasl.saslBind(LdapSasl.java:115)
These are the code / attributes I used.
Hashtable env = new Hashtable();
env.put( Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY, “com.sun.jndi.ldap.LdapCtxFactory” );
env.put( Context.PROVIDER_URL, “ldap://<machine name>:<port>” );
env.put( Context.SECURITY_PRINCIPAL, “cn=uimadmin,ou=UIM,o=nhes,dc=nh,dc=gov” );
env.put( Context.SECURITY_AUTHENTICATION, “simple” );
env.put( Context.SECURITY_CREDENTIALS, “<password in plaintext>” );
context = new InitialDirContext(env);
System.out.println("CONTEXT OPENED WITH ADMIN ACCOUNT");
catch (NamingException ne)
When I try and do an ldapsearch with a –x option (simple authentication) on the command line, it is returning results successfully. I am also able to connect using ldapbrowser v2.8.2 and see the results.
Any help regarding this is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
