Configuring LDAP authentication

  Asked By: Tanesha    Date: Jul 12    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1418

LDAP authentication to our AD LDAP is now working. Next step is to get it
working with the modified openLDAP client that is my end target.

Question, in configuring LDAP back to my AD it appears to me, and I could be way
wrong here, that SharePoint wants the sAMAccountName to authenticate against.
Would that be accurate?

If so, would that attribute be required in my openLDAP configuration?

If you take a look at the Membership entry you added to the Web.config you will
notice that the SAMAccountName is the setting for one of the attributes. You
can change that to point to a different(but unique) username attribute  supported
by the LDAP instance you are authenticating to.
