I have installed Enterprise portal full java edition (trial version) in a Windows XP machine. I have also successfully configured ADS for user authentication with EP (Netweaver 2004s SP9 version). Now, the requirement is to have a writeable connection with the Active Directory Server so that users in EP can modify their credentials on ADS. Is a SSL connection between EP 6.4 and ADS absolutely necessary for this? Also I need to know if the trial version supports SSL or not. Whenever I am choosing dataSourceConfigurations_ads_writeable_db.xml from the configtool, and check the SSL checkbox, the "Test Connection" and "Test Authentication" button is greying out.
The WebAS version is 7.0 and I have configured Visual admin to start ssl and keystore service.
Points are guaranteed on good answers.
