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.

IT Pros Agree: AI and Machine Learning Key

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

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?
