Re: Unity Connection LDAP Authentication

Steven,

This is because you most likely aren't using the proper syntax for Distinguished Name. It needs to be in the format below (insert your company's structure):

CN=ucadmin,OU=Cisco,OU=Service Accounts,DC=mandt,DC=bank,DC=com

The LDAP Directory configuration page will work with your current syntax, but the authentication will not. I would advise changing them both to the above syntax. If you're not sure what your syntax involves; ADSIEdit tool from a Windows machine can give you the proper string that you can just paste in there.

Hope that helps,

Brad
