could you please try to put only the group value in the Search Filter field?
CN=SECURITY GROUP,OU=1st Folder,OU=2nd Folder
Long shot ... But did you ever get this working. I tried many combinations but nothing. The AD authentication works just fine, but not so for LDAP.
The "search filter" value in the Add/Edit authentication server dialog specifies the property name which is used to find the user name. The text entered to this field is used to generate the search filter: '=' and the user name is appended (in form of searchFilter=userName).
When you specify "cn" as search filter and try to login in as "domain/John", the search filter sent to LDAP server is: "cn=John".
This means that you can't specify complex search filters with current version of VMAN (6.1.1). We have created a feature request to support complex search filters.
Thanks ... It is kind of odd for this to work in this manner. Yes I have contacted support. They expressed the same response and suggested AD authentication, which works BUT is not all practical. I guess we will have to way for the next release, and hopefully they will fix this bug
Thanks for your reply!
