    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.

    Probably need to dig deeper in the trace, you might need IBM's assistance for that.
