Unable to communicate with the external LDAP directory server

Hi

Has anyone configured TSM user authentication through an AD directory?
I followed the official documentation (on a v7.1.7 server), and I get an error :
"ANR2732E Unable to communicate with the external LDAP directory server."
and
"ANR3114E LDAP error 81 (Can't contact LDAP server)"
Does someone have an idea ?
Many thanks !

ps : I checked: I do not have any space character in the LDAPUSER

I obviously looked at Google, and on the IBM support site.
I am unfortunately not in the case indicated by IBM (no space in the name of the user AD).
IBM indicates that this error may come from the incorrectly specified LDAPURL option.
But the detailed traces did not bring me more details :-(

Thanks.

Did you try this:
Use an LDAP connection utility such as ldp.exe to ensure the ldapurl option is correct and the LDAP server is accepting connections

<ldapurl> port 636, check the box for SSL

Verify there are no errors in the output
