Re: Need to configure openLDAP client to request authenication in LDAP version 2 format
This would be adjusted in your slapd.conf. See http://linux.die.net/man/5/slapd.conf
You will need an allow statement such as "allow bind_v2".

I am installing a new version of our Zope/Plone software for hosting
our web portal. The new software is using a product called
PloneLDAP, which (I think) in turn requests authentication using
openLDAP client. openLDAP is authenticating through our mail
server, which wants bind requests in version 2 format. Modification
of the mail server software to use version 3 authentication does not
seem to be an option, as (according to my Tech guy) it is “really
not LDAP”, but has an “LDAP Like” interface. The interface requires
the bind to look like this:
ldapConnection, userid, password
not in version 3 format, which looks like this:
ldapConnection, uid=”userid”, password
I have tried to force openLDAP client to perform bind requests using
the “ldap_version 2” parameter in the /usr/local/etc/openldap/
ldap.conf system-wide ldap configuration file, and also in a .ldaprc
file stored in the Zope working directory. Neither seem to work.
Can anyone tell me how to successfully configure openLDAP to send a
version 2 bind request?
