LDAP Authentication with Active Directory

I am using Netbeans and the Apache module that comes with it to build an intranet application that uses authentication with Active Directory. I have a few questions

1. Is the apache module that comes bundled with Netbeans configured to work with active directory for authentication?

2. How do I configure apache to use active directory for authentication

3. How do I configure the apache realm to use active directory for authentication through LDAP

I have tried with the code below, and the result is the java exception that follows. I have tried many options and several attributes for the realm configuration.

the code...

<Realm className="org.apache.catalina.realm.JNDIRealm"
debug="99"
connectionURL="ldap://<my_server_address>:389";
userRoleName="member"
userBase="cn=users,dc=<my_domain_name>"
userPattern="cn={0},cn=Users,dc=<my_domain_name>"
roleBase="cn=Users,dc=<my_domain_name>"
roleName="cn"
roleSearch="(member={0})"
roleSubtree="false"
userSubtree="true"

the exception...

javax.naming.NamingException: [LDAP: error code 1 - 00000000: LdapErr: DSID-0C090627, comment: In order to perform this operation a successful bind must be completed on the connection., data 0, vece

I need some insights into possible sources of this error

Obviously, you will need a bind for your connection. I am having the same problem, but after I bind, I get an IllegalArgumentException stating I can't bind a null object with no attributes.



Let me know if you find a solution for this problem. I have posted my error for your reference. Thank you.

I think you need a connectionName and a connectionPassword to connect to the LDAP server

Look at My other post, if you are still intersted in connecting to active directory.
