R/3 users Authntication to LDAP?



I have configured the LDAP Conenctor using Tx LDAP from R/3 4.7 running on AIX Server to MS-ADS LDAP Server.

After making all the settigns i have run the report RSLDAPSYNC_USER for synchronizing the users between R/3 amd LDAP.

Then the Users available in LDAP are getting Updated and Created in R/3, but the users in R/3 are not getting created. Its giving the LDAP_CREATE Failed, Restriction Violated For this I have posted in the previous thread.

I want to know some of my assumptions are correct / wrong.

1. If we do all these settings, when the User try to login he will be authenticated to LDAP?

2. In MS-ADS the password length is more than 8 char we can have, but in SAP its 8 char, do we need to increase this field length.

3. Or if the user changes the password in MS-ADS, do we need to run the synchronization again.

4. We are assuming that if the LDAP configuration is finished then the users are not required to maintain or change their passwords in R/3 instead they can use the MS-ADS password and changes also in MS-ADS. Is this assumption right?

Please Sugegst me.

I am still investigating for the sync from R/3 to LDAP.

The User available in LDAP is created in R/3 but there is no password allocated for him. Do i need to mention the password attribute also in the mapping, if so can any one please let me know the attribute and corresponding filed of R/3.

Thanks & Regards
