ldap (active directory) auth

hi folks

i'm trying to use active directory for  authentication, but if i set the ldap server to  ldap:///    as per the docs, it won't let me in.

looking at the logs it seems to be trying to connect to localhost:389  - but getting connection refused.  i don't think there's a service running on that port

is there anything i have to /enable/ to have this working on windows server 2008r2 ?

Re: ldap (active directory) auth

Hi Peter,

Sounds like Active Directory may not be running on the same host as WFA.  If not, you need to point WFA to one of the domain controllers with ldap://<dc_host_name>

Hope this helps,

Dave
