Subject [users@httpd] LDAP authorisation with Unicode in the Base DN
Date Tue, 23 Dec 2008 03:21:34 GMT
I'm trying to do LDAP authorisation with an Active Directory server, and 
the "Base DN" has Japanese characters in it. This should be no problem, 
but I can't get it to work.

The Base DN is something like:
The corresponding LDAP URL is something like:


I think it has the Japanese characters specified in proper RFC 2255 
format. So I think there is a problem in the LDAP authentication module 
in properly sending the queries with UTF-8 content in the base DN. The 
error.log file says "[ldap_search_ext_s() for user failed][No Such 
Object]" which seems to indicate that the LDAP server isn't getting a 
valid base DN.

Any insights on this?
