Step-by-Step Guide for EP6 and ADS 2003?

0 Kudos

Hello all,

Is there some sort of step-by-step guide or documentation which details the steps required to implement EP6 (SP15) with Active Directory Sever on Win Server 2003?

Although I am able to successfully complete the "test connection," I have never been able to create a user id due to several errors (the most recent being WILL_NOT_PEFORM). However, I have read several threads which detail different possibilities and they all differ (e..g, some say to use SSL, while others reference group policy, or indicate that schema extensions are required, etc.).

In any event, I've certainly tried numerous combinations of the solutions, but to no avail. So that's why I'm wondering if there's some sort of documentation which details each step to have the EP6 connect with ADS 2003 and fully create users.

Do you know of any specific step-by-step documenation that I can read which will allow me to get the EP and LDAP working?

Thanks ever so much in advance,

We do have installed a Lotus Notes LDAP. Unfortunately, the documentation is company internal in German.

The steps, in general, where:

1) Create physical connection (obviously, you did that)

2) Deploy the XML Descriptor for the LDAP under "UM Configuration => Data Sources"

We used a derivate of the Sun One LDAP Profile.

3) Match the assignement LDAP Group --> EP Role --> EP User via EP user management

4. The user, in our case, is always created in the LDAP first (from a different LDA administration group) and is then visible in the Portal)

I know, this is very generic, but the "magic" is in the XML profile and I haven't seen any documentation about it yet.

Hi Holger,

Thanks for that really helps.

And now that you mention step 4, that really will also be the process for us, too. I guess I don't have to worry about EP throwing that error about not being able to create the account, since the LDAP people would be managing that.
