Domino server no longer authenticating through LDAP

Greetings experts,

I had setup authentication on my Domino server (R8.0.2 on W2003 Enterprise) to authenticate to my company's LDAP enterprise directory. Just recently it stopped working and is asking for a password where the dialog window shows the "/directory name" in it. Would you let me know what I can check to ensure that the LDAP connection is still good?

Thank you.

I would ask to see if the credentials you are using have changed or require a different password.  You will need to talk to your Active Directory Admin.
I doubt that the problem is on the Domino side.

What if the certificate changed on the enterprise directory?

Well in theory, as long as the user access and passwords have not changed it should not make a difference, unless you are using CA authentication or something that requires that certificate, rather than a specific user access.

We are using a CA authentication and I believe it did change. How would I go about changing that? It is probably something I do not do very often. Thanks.
Whoops - apologies to all. I looked at User Security > Identity of Others > Find more about people/services and that appeared to resolve the issue after a reboot as well. Thank you for all your responses.
