LDAP configuration Problem

Hi!

I am currenlty configuring AIX and Solaris to be authenticated with KERBEROS and authorized through LDAP.  Our set-up is integrated with Windows 2003 Active Directory R2.  Kerberos is perfectly working. This is my first time to configure LDAP and I am now encountering problem on the initial part.  I started with AIX5.3 ML06.  I have installed the ldap.client and when I run the below command:

#mksecldap -c -h testdomain.sistestdomain.sistest.com -a cn=administrator -p <administrator password>

I am getting the below error
3001-730 Invalid bind DN or bind password

I have also tried it on smitty but still with the same error.


Regards,

Does the CN= for the administrator account need a full path i.e cn=administrator,cn=users,dc=testdomain,dc=sistestdomain,dc=sistest,dc=com if the administrator is still in the users container.

Hi ReidAW,

Sorry but I did not get on what you mean on your question.  I am not that good also on Active directory.  I am more on AIX.  Anyway,  on our ADSI Edit Console under our Domain, below are some of the details.

DC=sistestdomain, DC=sistest, DC=com

Under CN=Users
>>> CN=Administrator

Hi mkuser01

You need to specify the full DN for the admin user. Example:

#mksecldap -c -h testdomain.sistestdomain.sistest.com -a cn=administrator,cn=users,dc=testdomain,dc=sistestdomain,dc=sistest,dc=com -p <administrator password>

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

Hi,

I did try the command but still getiing the same error.  I even try to create a separate user named ldap to use as a bind user but still no luck.

To All,

This problem was fixed upon upgrading the maintenance level of the AIX to 5300_06.  I just want to say thank you from all the comments.
