Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSERVER-1065) describes wrong feature
Date Wed, 19 Sep 2007 07:00:43 GMT


Stephan Hermann commented on DIRSERVER-1065:

HI Stefan,

first, sorry for the wrong paste of the link...
I followed the admin steps of the page, and it didn't work in 1.5.0....(I missed the installer
for 1.5.1).

I set a MD5 password in the ldap tree. stopped the server, edited the server.xml and add the
plain text password, the server didn't come up anymore.
Then I set in the server.xml the MD5 hash string of the password, and server came up.
But, connecting via ldap browser to this server with the very same password, it didn't work
"error 49, cannot bind" was the message.

I'll check out 1.5.1 during the day and check if it works there.

you mention that you change your admin password via apache directory studio with the SHA algorythm.
Setting this up like its described on the page, the server doesn't startup. If you setup the
{SHA} string in the server.xml the server starts up but you can't authenticate against the
server anymore.
