LDAP configuration issues

Jump to solution

Dear All,

This is my first interaction with VCeneter Orchestrator and I’m facing a major problem in configuring the LDAP configuration. It looks strait forward to me but it keep says “Ldap configuration successfully saved, but the configuration is in error.”

Error:LDAP connection successful but no users found. Please check LDAP paths.

Error Admin group not found

I don’t know what I did wrong so if anyone could guide me to set this configuration in the right way.

I entered the Domain controller name and tested the connectivity using Telnet and everything was fine. Than the root using distinguished name format exported from the Active directory using DSQuery command.

the resource used was VM_ Orc. configuration guide.

Your accesnance is highly appreciated.

Thanks.

As an example assuming a domain of acme.corp with all users in the default location, and groups in the default location, you would configure the paths as follows. This example uses a group named "vcoadmins" with the "administrator" account a member of that group:

Root: dc=acme,dc=corp

Username: administrator@acme.corp

User lookup base: cn=users,dc=acme,dc=corp

Group lookup base: cn=users,dc=acme,dc=corp

vCO Admin group: cn=vcoadmins,cn=users,dc=acme,dc=corp

Does this help at all?

That was exceptionally helpful for me. Logging into my Win2k8R2 domain controller and running the command dsquery to get the LDAP paths. Thank you for including the command switches and examples. If I had points to award you - I would.
