Hi, I'm testing Alfresco Community Edition on Ubuntu Server 18.04. I'm just struggling to get Active Directory integration working.

 

From the documentation: https://docs.alfresco.com/community/tasks/auth-example-oneldap-ad.html I have added following lines to /opt/alfresco-community/tomcat/shared/classes/alfresco-global.properties:

 

authentication.chain=ldap1:ldap-ad
ntlm.authentication.sso.enabled=false
ldap.authentication.allowGuestLogin=false
ldap.authentication.userNameFormat=%s@domain.com
ldap.authentication.java.naming.provider.url=ldap://*******.intranet.laarne.be:389
ldap.authentication.defaultAdministratorUserNames=Administrator,superuser
ldap.synchronization.java.naming.security.principal=********@intranet.laarne.be
ldap.synchronization.java.naming.security.credentials=secret
ldap.synchronization.groupSearchBase=CN=GG_ALFRESCO,OU=Groups,OU=Gemeentebestuur Laarne,dc=INTRANET,dc=LAARNE,dc=BE
ldap.synchronization.userSearchBase=OU=Gemeentebestuur Laarne,dc=INTRANET,dc=LAARNE,dc=BE

 

But when trying to log in with a user, which is member of the GG_ALFRESCO group, I'm getting

 

"Your authentication details haven't been recognized or Alfresco Content Services may not be available at this time."

 

 

  1. I stop and start Alfresco every time I make a change to this properties file
  2. Am I modifying the right file?
  3. Where can I find more details on why my login attempts are failing? (more specific logging)
