I am trying to authenticate a user against ldap (unix and AD)
and I have a strange problem.
I tried both the AD ldap server of my company as well as the
my account works just fine, my password is along the lines of
when I was using only AD ldap a user had a password with a :
in it, (:Word3534) and the page gave a nice error message, by
changing to Unix LDAP this is fixed. now though my test user with a
password of Word:3534 and we get Inappropriate authentication. now
I know the password words as I tested it on several systems.
This is just a WAG, but make sure that the user is not
required to change their password at the first login. This would
mean the account is locked out even though you created it
successfully and accessed it once.
