Hi,
Just installed alfresco-community-4.2.c-installer-win-x32.exe on my Windows 2003 server with all the latest Windows Update.

I'm trying to get LDAP authentication to work and I'm having a very hard time getting it working! :(

Here's what I have at the end of my alfresco-global.properties file:


authentication.chain=alfinst:alfrescoNtlm,ldap1:ldap-ad

# This flag enables use of this LDAP subsystem for authentication. It may be
# that this subsytem should only be used for synchronization, in which case
# this flag should be set to false.
ldap.authentication.active=true

#
# This properties file brings together the common options for LDAP authentication rather than editing the bean definitions
#
ldap.authentication.allowGuestLogin=false

# How to map the user id entered by the user to taht passed through to LDAP
# In Active Directory, this can either be the user principal name (UPN) or DN.
# UPNs are in the form <sAMAccountName>@domain and are held in the userPrincipalName attribute of a user
ldap.authentication.userNameFormat=%s@MyDomain

# The LDAP context factory to use
ldap.authentication.java.naming.factory.initial=com.sun.jndi.ldap.LdapCtxFactory

# The URL to connect to the LDAP server
ldap.authentication.java.naming.provider.url=ldap://MyDomain.activedir.somedomain.ca:389

# The authentication mechanism to use for password validation
ldap.authentication.java.naming.security.authentication=simple

# Escape commas entered by the user at bind time
# Useful when using simple authentication and the CN is part of the DN and contains commas
ldap.authentication.escapeCommasInBind=false

# Escape commas entered by the user when setting the authenticated user
# Useful when using simple authentication and the CN is part of the DN and contains commas, and the escaped \, is
# pulled in as part of an LDAP sync
# If this option is set to true it will break the default home folder provider as space names can not contain \
ldap.authentication.escapeCommasInUid=false

# Comma separated list of user names who should be considered administrators by default
ldap.authentication.defaultAdministratorUserNames=someUser1,someUser2

# This flag enables use of this LDAP subsystem for user and group
# synchronization. It may be that this subsytem should only be used for

ldap.synchronization.active=true

# The authentication mechanism to use for synchronization
ldap.synchronization.java.naming.security.authentication=simple

# The default principal to bind with (only used for LDAP sync). This should be a UPN or DN
ldap.synchronization.java.naming.security.principal=someUser1@MyDomain

# The password for the default principal (only used for LDAP sync)
ldap.synchronization.java.naming.security.credentials=SomeVeryCoolPass.#98

# If positive, this property indicates that RFC 2696 paged results should be
# used to split query results into batches of the specified size. This
# overcomes any size limits imposed by the LDAP server.
ldap.synchronization.queryBatchSize=1000

# If positive, this property indicates that range retrieval should be used to fetch
# multi-valued attributes (such as member) in batches of the specified size.
# Overcomes any size limits imposed by Active Directory.

# The query to select all objects that represent the groups to import.
ldap.synchronization.groupQuery=(objectclass\=group)

ldap.synchronization.personQuery=(&(objectclass\=user)(userAccountControl\:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803\:\=512))

# The query to select objects that represent the users to import that have changed since a certain time.
ldap.synchronization.personDifferentialQuery=(&(objectclass\=user)(userAccountControl\:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803\:\=512)(!(whenChanged<\={0})))

# The group search base restricts the LDAP group query to a sub section of tree on the LDAP server.

# The name of the operational attribute recording the last update time for a group or user.
ldap.synchronization.modifyTimestampAttributeName=whenChanged

# The timestamp format. Unfortunately, this varies between directory servers.

ldap.synchronization.groupMemberAttributeName=member

# If true progress estimation is enabled. When enabled, the user query has to be run twice in order to count entries.
ldap.synchronization.enableProgressEstimation=true


In the alfresco.log file all I see is this at some point after I restart the service:


15:36:25,867 INFO  [org.alfresco.repo.management.subsystems.ChildApplicationContextFactory] Starting 'Synchronization' subsystem, ID: [Synchronization, default]

org.alfresco.error.AlfrescoRuntimeException: 01040000 User and group import failed
   at org.alfresco.repo.security.sync.ldap.LDAPUserRegistry.processQuery(LDAPUserRegistry.java:1188)


I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong! I've loaded a LDAP client to make sure my values make sense! (using Active Directory Explorer)

Any ieads? help?

Thanks
