Business objects authentication against active directory/ldap question
Posted on 2011-02-15
We have a new process/reporting service in development and the new server will be running business objects. It is Windows Server 2008 running in an Active Directory 2003 domain. I have a service account that was setup for them to schedule jobs and it has allowed them to work so far. The new requirement is that they integrate the authentication using the LDAP option. I just received a notice from the developers that they are receiving an error message stating "“The secLdap plugin failed to verify the server administration credentials”". Currently the account is set on to only be able to log onto the application server where business objects is installed. Does it also need to be granted logon rights to the domain controllers where the LDAP option is pointed to?
Thanks in advance.
