LDAP Authentication with Open Directory, OSX 10.6.7 using BitNami stack Redmine Install

Added by steve dominguez almost 8 years ago

Does anyone happen to know the proper settings for the Attributes section? I think I have the top section correct (although it's also possible that I have mistake there too)... For the life of me, I cannot find a useful entry in the Wikis or FAQs regarding setup recommendations for LDAP against OpenDirectory. Tons of materials exist for LDAP against Active Directory with Windows....

Currently I have:

Name: Terraspark LDAP
Host: myhost.terraspark.local
Port: 389
Account: uid=diradminname,cn=users,dc=myhost,dc=terraspark,dc=local
Password: mydiradminpasswordhere
Base DN: cn=users,dc=limestone,dc=terraspark,dc=pvt

Attributes:

Login: uid
First Name: cn
Last Name: sn
Email: mail

Anyone see any glaring errors?

Please help!

Quick Edit:

Base DN: cn=users,dc=limestone,dc=terraspark,dc=local

(i meant local here, not pvt -- sorry)

Just bumping back up to the top -- still hoping someone notices this and has had some experience with the proper LDAP settings for OSX

With Open Directory there is no need to fill in Account and Password fields. The ldap can be used for authentication without these fields. Base DN is important though.

I registered here just to give a solution for this issue, as it still shows up in Google as top result (after all these years).
The trick is to set the Firstname Attribute right, as this seems a bit odd in the regular LDAP naming scheme:

Firstname attribute: givenName

See screenshot for all settings in my working setup, which I'll publish below to get search results for up-to-date systems:

OS
Mac OS X 10.11.1 (El Capitan)
Bitnami Redmine Stack 3.1.2.
Mac OS X Server 5.0.15
Xcode Service for hosting repositories
Open Directory for LDAP
