Configuring LDAP connection with Novell eDirectory

Aug 30, 2013 at 12:35 AM
I'm just wondering whether you've had any experience with configuration the LDAP connection with Novell eDirectory or if it's compatible?

Thanks again and great project!

Further to this, I'm connecting ok to the Novell eDirectory but continuously receive the message sorry we're having trouble reaching the server. In the ULS it shows the connection happening fine and even returning a matched result:

[LDAPCP] The LDAP Query "(|(&(objectclass=user) (sAMAccountName=s272333*))(&(objectclass=group) (cn=s272333*))(&(objectclass=user) (displayName=s272333*))(&(objectclass=user) (cn=s272333*)))" returned 1 result(s)

Any ideas?

I never tested to connect on a Novell eDirectory, but I already tested on SUN LDAP and I had to use the "ServerBind authentication mode" option, so I suggest you test the same (you can check the box in the LDAPCP configuration page).
If it doesn't work, can you copy the exact error (filter SharePoint logs with "LDAPCP" category)?
Please keep me posted.
