Spaces in the LDAP OU field

Answered Question
Jun 22nd, 2012

       Hello,

I'm running VPN SSL on an asa 5520 (V8.2.5) with LDAP authentication and everything works fine but now the AD people changed name in the groups and they added a " " "blank" in one of the fields so when I configured the group I get an error.

for example:

this works:

 

map-value memberOf CN=VPN_SSL_ABC,OU=External,OU=XXX,DC=ext,DC=local ABCPolicy

but this does not:

map-value memberOf CN=VPN_SSL_ABC,OU=External Group,OU=XXX,DC=ext,DC=local ABCPolicy

Is there any way to insert a space in the OU field?

thanks in advance

Giovanni

I have this problem too.

Yes, just put quotes for the memberOf attribute as follows:

map-value memberOf "CN=VPN_SSL_ABC,OU=External Group,OU=XXX,DC=ext,DC=local" ABCPolicy

Further to Jennifer post, I would like to add that quotes actually represent the distinguish name as single entity.
