Microsoft Active Directory Integration

I need to integrate the Microsoft Active directory where all of our company's users are stored into a new installation of Jira 5.1.6 on a Linux RHEL6 machine. I have questions in regards to the configuration of this procedure. I set up everything to the best of my knowledge and tested my connection afterwards, it fails on step 2. Here is the issue that comes up. The user I used is my very own, so I'm assuming it's another setting somewhere. Thanks.

Test retrieve user : Failed

org.springframework.ldap.LimitExceededException: Referral limit exceeded; nested exception is javax.naming.LimitExceededException: Referral limit exceeded Root exception is com.sun.jndi.ldap.LdapReferralException: LDAP: error code 10 - 0000202B: RefErr: DSID-031007EF, data 0, 1 access points ref 1: '' ; remaining name '' ; remaining name ''

Hi Frank,

I believe you are experiencing a problem similar to the one described here.

Please try disabling Follow Referrals on your User Directory configuration.

You could also try using a BaseDN more restricted if you are not using all users referred on that.

Hope this helps,

Hi Marcus,

Thanks for the reply. I went ahead and disabled "Follow Referrals" and it now just says incorrect username or password. Before it would just time out. How could I restrict the BaseDN some more?

The user I am using under the "Server Settings" sectio when adding a new user directory must have admin rights to the active directory server. Is this correct?

I kindly suggest you to check the log to find out the error message, but I guess it could be an incorrect password.

Would be possible to clarify your last question?

Actually the BaseDN is important and useful for finding out and configuring the the LDAP structure of your server.
