[ScreenOS] Unable to implement the bind password in LDAP via Active Directory



Article ID: KB23223 KB Last Updated: 30 Sep 2013Version: 2.0
This article describes the issue of being unable to implement the bind password in LDAP via Active Directory.
Unable to implement the bind password in LDAP via Active Directory. The following error message is generated:

1. The error code in snoop from the server is: resultCode: invalidCredentials (49)
2. In debug auth ldap we are seeing: parse_ldap_bind_result: Authentication failed

The bind request you are sending to LDAP server does not have privilege to browse the LDAP schema.
  • There is no specific configuration option on the firewall to implement a bind for Active Directory authentication.
  • Active Directory does not allow anyone to browse and pull back information from the directory.
  • We need to configure an Administrator or a user on the LDAP server and make sure that it can browse through the directory.
  • Or we can enable anonymous searches on LDAP server.
