xMII 11.5 connection to LDAP

We have completed the LDAP User Configuration page in xMII 11.5 and the test scripts are working. We are now attempting to configure the external user authentication against our Active Directory so that we do not need to maintain users in xMII itself. According to the on-line documents, we configure an LDAP policy, pointing the connection to the Active Directory again. This has been completed and it appears to be working as we can login to xMII with a domain account and their domain password, which is different from the user's xMII password. What we are finding is that once we delete the user account from xMII, the login fails. Switching the control flag between sufficient, requisite and other values does not seem to matter. What we are trying to get to is a situation where, if the user logging in exists in the domain (AD), they are given access,. If the user does not exist in the domain but does exist in xMII, they are given access as well.

Thanks in advance.

    Paul,

    If the settings and queries for the LDAP User Configuration (make sure to check the Enabled box at the bottom of the Connection tab) are configured properly, you should only need to confirm the LDAP policy setup. Look in the help docs to see what fields are required since most of the ones at the bottom of the Security Policy panel are only needed for importing LDAP users into xMII. You should not need the local xMII users in order to login using the LDAP credentials.

    Regards,

    Jeremy
