GitStack LDAP Syncing
« on: March 28, 2013, 12:03:38 pm »
Hello,

Have recently installed and setup Zentyal 3. I have FREENAS syncing with LDAP and I am trying to get GitStack to do the same but have not had any luck. I can get GitStack to successfully test the connection but when I try to sync I get an error message which I think is related to the 'username' attribute that I am using in the connection.

Here are the details that GitStack asks for:

Protocol : using ldap
Host : using local network ip
Port : using 390
Base DN : using Base DN from Zentyal LDAP page
Attribute : GitStack says this is 'The attribute on which the username is stored. Example "sAMAccountName"'. I have tried 'uid', 'cn', 'Users'
Scope : Can be either 'one' or 'sub' - using 'sub'
Filter : "(objectClass=Person)" is default - using "(objectClass=*)
Bind DN : using "uid=gitstack,ou=Users,dc=our,dc=domain,dc=com" (replacing our domain com with actual domain)
Bind Password : using gitstack password

With these settings GitStack is able to Test the Ldap settings but as soon as I sync them it gives me an error message related to the 'Attribute' that I have filled in.

Have been tearing my hair out trying to figure it out with different, any pointers would be really appreciated.

Cheers
Mark

Have you tried "sAMAccountName"?

First you should really avoid any solution claiming to be LDAP compliant but trying to "synchronize" accounts. Reason being that LDAP is not there to provide referential repository to be used for sync but to be used as user back-end repository.
Sync means also out-of-sync most of the time  ;)  at least until next synchro  :P

Then, I don't think Samaccountname exists with LDAP on port 390. It exists on port 389 (dedicated to Samba) but there is no reason to maintain such account in LDAP out of Microsoft world.

Would you mind sharing your error message ? What I can read is already translation of what you think being the error isn't it?.
In case you need to drill-down, be aware that you could increase LDAP log level and look at what happens in syslog.

Thanks for the reply. Makes sense about syncing being the wrong way to go about things.

Error is a bit long but here it is (when I was using 'Users' as the attribute):

Might need to find another GIT solution that does LDAP correctly.

Hi,

Thanks for the help. After the note about not being LDAP compliant I ditched GitStack and went with SCM-Manager which is working with no problems at all.

I'm glad you found something fitting your needs.

For what concerns my comment about "applications wrongly claiming to be LDAP compliant", take it with a it of salt  ;D
What I meant to say is that do not implement LDAP relying on state-of-the-art design. Still it may work but be prepared to face some problems sooner or later.
