ldap setup

Maybe I'm missing something here but I cannot get LDAP working and every time I have tried I hose up local authentication and have to revert a snapshot.


The instructions say: " This string instructs CodeCollaborator how to locate a user within LDAP. The format of the string is the same as the LDAP distinguished name of a user with the username replaced with the string {0}." <-huh????


I've tried many different settings in there to no avail - A dsquery shows like this:

C:\Windows\system32>dsquery * ou=it,dc=something,dc=net
"CN=cisco LDAP,OU=Users,OU=IT,DC=something,DC=net"
"CN=Some Wireless,OU=Users,OU=IT,DC=something,DC=net"

If I am using the domain, what needs to be in the fields exactly? Need help - thanks

    Based on the dsquery, you could use something like this: CN={0}, OUT=it, DC=something, DC=net. It would have been nice to see the entire(line) configuration that you currently have.


    Alternatively, you can also use this application,, to test different configurations. If one of them work, they should also work in Collaborator.


    I hope that helps.
