Authenticate external Devices with UCS LDAP

computer-account

#1

I am trying to authenticate Desktop Management (KACE product) with through UCS.
I can get the app to connect to the ldap with the follwing settings

Hostname: server IP
port: my port
username: CN=Administrator,CN=Users,DC=mydomain,DC=com
password: administratorpassword

I get error message “ERROR:Errno 49 Invalid credentials.”
But when i use this account to login computer, it could run well.

Thanks

Hello,
Can you connect with ldapsearch?
Have a look at this Cool Solution: https://wiki.univention.de/index.php/Cool_Solution_-_LDAP_search_user

Hey,

I seem to remember from back when I still had a KACE system that the input fields in KACE’s LDAP configuration were rather limited regarding the password length (or something like that) — e.g. only 12 or 16 characters. As far as I remember there wasn’t a workaround. What I ended up doing was adding a separate user just for KACE (it’s only about searching the LDAP anyway) whose password length matches what KACE accepted.

Kind regards,
mosu

You can connect to the server via SSH with root account and the password of the Administrator account.
