Authentication with OpenLDAP

Question asked by tico on Sep 14, 2006

Hi there,

I have Open-xchange (OX) installed on a Linux box (FC5), using an OpenLDAP server on the same host for authentication.

I have installed Alfresco, and would like to share accounts and groups from (OX) through OpenLDAP. Unfortunately, until now I failed to authenticate…

OX uses MD5, SHA, or plain text encryption mechanism… thus I believe I have to configure Alfresco to use etheir DIGEST-MD5 or simple mechanism…



I tried several combination for the userNameFormat, but nothing works… Any help is very welcome !!

Thansk,

Eric.
Here is an extract of an ldif file from my OpenLDAP server :
