Configuring LDAP as a datasource in portal

Hi all,

I am in the process of configuring LDAP Novell edirectory as a data source in addition to the default DB.

The issue is: Connection test fails after I have entered the values in configtool & click Test Connection.

The thing is when I don't specify the password for the LDAP server, the connection test passes!!Otherwise, I get an error saying 'Connection test fails. Error code 13 confidentiality required'.Don't know what's happening.

Can somebody help me in this regard?

Thanks & regards,

    Something is wrong with the user ID/Pass that you try to configure:

    The best way is to download the LDAP browser:

    Try to configure it for the connection/authenticatio process. When successful enter that data in UME. Do not use the LDAP view in the Config tool, since that is just a 'view' which actually displays your configuration. Always when you maintain UME parameters, use the procedure described here:
