I am getting these sorts of exceptions when trying to authenticate to active directory:
javax.naming.AuthenticationException: [LDAP: error code 49 - 80090308: LdapErr: DSID-0C090334, comment: AcceptSecurityContext error, data 773, vece
Now I know the codes are:
525 - user not found
52e - invalid credentials
530 - not permitted to logon at this time
532 - password expired
533 - account disabled
701 - account expired
773 - user must reset password
Now in my code I want to give a user nice message according to what happened. Is there a better way then just parsing the message string?
