I have been trying (and trying) to get a Spring application to authenticate against an AD LDAP server. I keep getting "Bad credentials" exception. When I use the same username/password in a LDAP tool, it works without issue. I am using Spring Security 3.1.2 and there isn't much to configuration. Does anyone have any ideas? I just want to see it authenticate and work from there. I can't even get that to happen. Help..
You are probably going to need a little more information to figure out what is happening. I would set your logger levels for org.springframework.security to DEBUG and you should get a better picture of what exactly you are missing.
