Weblogic 10.3.5 & Windows 2003 Active Directory NO User but Groups

Hi,

I use OBIEE 11.1.1.5, Weblogic Server 10.3.5 and Active Directory Windows 2003.
I tried to integrate our external LDAP in the Weblogic admin console. The integration worked so far but I have the problem that I only see groups but no user.
When I use a simple LDAP Browser with the same query (as in the settings in the console) I get all the needed user and groups. I have no idea why this is happening.
The strange thing is - when I use the same settings in the RPD (admin tool) I am able to use the LDAP authentication.

Our LDAP structure is OU=MyCompany where CN= all User with their names. And a special group OU=BI with CN= group names like administration and so on. We use the same structure for our Jira and Windows.
Is there something I am missing?

here is my config.xml:

<security-configuration>
<name>bifoundation_domain</name>
<realm>
<sec:authentication-provider xsi:type="wls:active-directory-authenticatorType">
<sec:name>ADLdap</sec:name>
<sec:control-flag>SUFFICIENT</sec:control-flag>
<wls:host>##########(I blanked this part out)</wls:host>
<wls:user-object-class>user</wls:user-object-class>
<wls:user-name-attribute>sAMAccountName</wls:user-name-attribute>
<wls:principal>cn=ldap-reader,cn=users,dc=company,dc=com</wls:principal>
<wls:user-base-dn>ou=MyCompany,dc=company,dc=de</wls:user-base-dn>
<wls:credential-encrypted>I removed this part </wls:credential-encrypted>
<wls:user-from-name-filter>(&(cn=%u)(objectclass=user))</wls:user-from-name-filter>
<wls:all-users-filter>objectClass=user</wls:all-users-filter>
<wls:group-base-dn>ou=BI,dc=company,dc=com</wls:group-base-dn>
<wls:all-groups-filter>objectClass=group</wls:all-groups-filter>
</sec:authentication-provider>

Thanks in advance!
