Is it possible to connect WFA to a virtual directory services instance that is not an MS AD implementation? My customer is no longer allowing direct connections to AD servers, and I need to bind to a secure LDAP implementation provided by a third party vendor.
ldaps://<server>:<port> appears to allow the connection, but the user is not able to log in. My assumption is because normally the credentials are being passed through to AD which allows a connection, whereas with VDS solution the individual users are not allowed to authenticate.
using ldaps://<server>:<port> I get the following error:
(domain/user/server/port info manually removed)
2014-11-18 15:39:20,253 INFO [com.netapp.wfa.ldap.LdapLoginModule] (http-executor-threads - 100) Looking up user ‘<DOMAIN>\<USER> in LDAP servers
2014-11-18 15:39:20,269 INFO [com.netapp.wfa.ldap.LdapWrapper] (http-executor-threads - 100) Getting LDAP context for server 'ldaps://<LDAP_SERVER>:<PORT>'
I would like to pose this as an RFE. We worked with the customer and built the POC, showed it and pushed it into production, using AD LDAP. Then they started blocking access to AD LDAP connections before a new set jobs of were added and effectively set us back. So while we met all the requirements at the time, with the change I have no other options currently.
EDIT: My Apologies, I am still on WFA version 2.1 and had not even read the 3.0 release notes, it would have answered my question!
