vCenter using openLDAP

I am using vCenter to authenticate users using openLDAP 2.4 version which i have installed on my domain.

i am using vCenter as appliance and openLDAP installed on SUSE linux.

I am able to connect to openLDAP but for some reason i am not able to see the users in Vcenter.

need some assistance.

Hi Alessandro.

Your post was showing AD as a LDAP services.

Actually, I downloaded openldap source code, compelled and install it on suse linux.

I am using Oracle Berkeley DB as database.

when I connect to my ldap using jxplorer i am able to connect with no issue. When i connect using vCenter, i am able to add the identity source but i am not able to see any user accounts.

Do you have the correct base DN for users / groups?

Can you post a screenshot of the user account page where it is blank? What happen if you click on "test connection" on the identity source page?
How is this going?
