We have an ADAM instance that was migrated from 2003 to AD-LDS 2008. After doing so, the application broke after conecting to the AD-LDS 2008. We are using a wide IP alias that was never changed. The application works if we connect to 2003 but not to the 2008 instance. Any ideas? Thank you!

Have you done in place gradation from 2003 server to 2008 server  as per below link ?
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc732566(WS.10).aspx
In that case you should not face any issues

Is AD-LDS 2008 is also Domain controller or just member server ?

if its member server, then request you to just disjoin server from domain and re-join again and check if application is working

Hi Mahesh, the migration is not in place, and AD-LDS is a member server....

We are getting this error when we are trying to connect:

Caused by: java.security.PrivilegedActionException: javax.naming.AuthenticationException: GSSAPI [Root exception is javax.security.sasl.SaslException: GSS initiate failed [Caused by GSSException: No valid credentials provided (Mechanism level: Server not found in Kerberos database (7))]]

Have you tried disjoin \ re-join of 2008 ADLDS server please ?

If problem still persists you could give a try in place upgrade of 2003 machine as per above link

Judging by the error message it sounds like the proper service DNS entries are missing for the app to find the correct ADLDS instance also ADLDS security may be more stringent that 2003..

I would suggest you follow Mahesh advice and run through the upgrade graduation processess

@Mahesh - there are 5 instances on the member server and there's only that's kicking off an error though...So I don't think disjoin and re-add to the domain would be the solution....

I would suggest to try to re-register your SPN for ADLDA to make sure the service account for this ADLDS instance is registered in AD
