Re: Bind with attribute + RDN instead of DN

Well, while browsing for solution I realized that I was misinterpreting
RDN, so basically what I want is any third party application to
authenticate against my ldap using attributes other then DN, I guess its
the job of application to do a search for DN and then do a bind, am I
correct? Does anyone experienced similar problem while integrating with
third party applications like Nagios/ Forum/ Confluence softwares?
Nowadays most of the applications that claim to have "ldap support" for
authentication work with non-rdn values by searching for the
corresponding DN first and bind with this later.
Every other application which only uses auth with the rdn (by combining
the rd with the given base to an DN) is very poorly designed and should
be avoided. (IMHO)
