Sun One LDAP Configuration not working in sap portal 7.31

Hi All,

We are trying to configure SunOne LDAP to sap portal 7.31. we already configuring to MSADS LDAP and it works fine.

I created a custom datasource file and added both the LDAP details and configured according to a procedure available on ( configuration of Multiple LDAP data sources). After that we bounced our system. I can able to see the LDAP entry under user administration - ALL Data Sources. but when i try to search a user, it says "no element found".

SunOneLDAP Details:

hierarchy : flat with read only

server name: xyz

server port : secured port number

username: created a service user id in LDAP which has read only permissions

password : xxxxxx

user path : OU=USERS,

group path: n/a ( ldap doesnt maintain groups)

imported the ldap certificates in our sap portal system.

all the above properties are entered in custom xml file with both ldap details:

Please let me know if i am missing any other configuration,

    Hi Vinay,

    First of all, Please confirm that the Sun One Ldap server iscertified and supported for use with SAP

    You can refer to the following note

    Note 983808 - Certified LDAP servers.

    If the LDAP server you are trying to use is not certified, it has not been tested by SAP and there may be issues.

    Hello Vinay,

    when configuring multiple Ldap directories, There are a number of prerequisities that you need to
    For example, One prerequisite for Multi domains is that logon IDs must be unique across mutliple LDAP datasources. This will cause issue if duplicate IDs exist.

    Please see the following Documentation and notes for more information on this.

    Examples of Data Source Configuration Files - Identity Management - SAP Library

    Example: Configuration of Multiple LDAP Data Sources - Identity Management - SAP Library

    1618342 - Multiple LDAP Datasources - Active Directories where logon IDs
    are not unique
    762419 - Multi-Domain Logon Using Microsoft Active Directory

    Please have a look at the above notes which documet this and also tells
    you what to do in these situations.

      Hi David

      The sapnote doesnt work either. Checked the Logs , ran the diagtool trace, nothing helps.

      when i select the entry of ODSEE LDAP from the dropdown in useradmin and try to do some search like m*, it says " last search exceeded the size limit of the server, search result is incomplete".

      there was one sap note 1878353-UME search doesnt return any LDAP user. There was a bug, and asked us to apply the patches based on our portal version. This is not relevant to our portal version 7.31 sp11 , we are on latest sp level.

      I read the, two to three times, doing exactly what it was mentioned for multiple ldap configuration.

      Even opened the oss message with SAP, because ODSEE is certified by SAP according to the note.

      but they are saying its not a support issue, its a consulting issue.
