After LDAP integration we lost admin rights. local added admin still can't log in

In Confluence 4.0 We added an LDAP directory which, for some reason, wiped out all our administrator rights. SQL srvr back-end

We can't log in as an admin.

Followed the instructions for: If No Local Users Exist

Was able to add an 'admin' to local

  1. Add new groups by running: {ok}tick

  2. Add group memberships into cwd_membership: cross
    Could not do. Duplicate key msg from SQL

  3. Add group memberships into cwd_membership: tick

We presume that 2 didn't happen because the memberships are already there.

But the admin we added via sql can't log in. The message on log-in says the user does not exist. The local confluence directory is order '0' and still can't log in. I set the LDAP to 'F' - no joy.

How do we fix that - get an admin authority or roll back or take that LDAP added directory out from Confluence from the back-end.

Any ideas?

Hi Chance,

Have you also had a look at ?

Also, did you restart Confluence after making the database changes?
