vmware orchestrator configuration issue: LDAP

Jump to solution

Hello Guys,

I'm connecting our VMO to our domain AD and I get the following errors:

  • LDAP connection successful but no users found. Please check LDAP paths.

  • Admin group not found / OU=Users,DC=systec.local

did any of you encountered such error?

regards,

Nuno

When using the built-in AD folders, you must use CN=Users, not OU=Users since Microsoft used a different object type than Organizational Unit.

In Admin User Group you should use the coorect path to the user gourp

e.g.:

CN=VMOAdmins,CN=Users,DC=mydomain,DC=local

I have try to change but the connection failed if I try to access into VMO with credential different from standard (lcmadmin/admin , lcmuser/user, ecc...).

With this work the connection into config web orchestrator: OU=Liste e Gruppi,DC=domain,DC=local (I have define in Liste e gruppi : lcmadmins)

for VMO admins I have set: CN=lcmadmins,OU=Liste e Gruppi,DC=domain,DC=local (I have add some user member of lcmadmins)

Can you help be because the connection with Active Directory is successful but I don't enable to access into VMO with credential of AD user's?

Best regards

Andrea.

Hello everyone,

I too am having this issue. My fdqn is "mycompany.state.fl.us" and it says its makes the connection but I cannot get a query for the users or groups. I am using the examples below to no avail:

dc=enterprise,dc=state,dc=fl,dc=us which appears to work per the notification when "applied"

cn=orlando,cn=users,dc=mycompany,dc=state,dc=fl,dc=us does not work

cn=users,dc=mycompany,dc=state,dc=fl,dc=us does not work

cn=orlando,dc=mycompany,dc=state,dc=fl,dc=us does not work

I have 3 CN's in my AD for the three physical locations so the other obsticle will be how to query users in three seperate containers. I am connecting to the global catalog and a secondary DC from one of the other locations.

Thanks in advance for any help!
