Hi all,

I am using websphere portal server , that is connection to ldap for authentication , i am suddenly face a problem , where i can not sign on in the website using wpsadmin user (or any other user) , the message appear said that the user or password are incorrect ! i am sure they are correct because i use LDAP tool and search for them and they are correct , the question is how can i figure out what is the problem , noticed that there is not any error in the log files of Application server or portal server !

I know it is hard decide what is the problem , but i hope someone may faced this problem and found a solutions for it.

Best Regards,

Are you sure your configuration of LDAP for WPS is successful? You can check the logs during your configuration tasks.

BTW, what LDAP and version are you using?

What is the bind DN used in the LDAP configuration of WPS ?
Do you know how to perform LDAPsearch? If yes search for the attribute aci and object class = *,  and look the aci containing the admin Id used...

I can give you the ldap search if you need.
