Active directory synchronization [CLOSED]

New postby garaujo » Tue Sep 21, 2010 3:23 pm

hello, I hope everything is excellent, this time I want to comment a situation that i have with the Active Directory synchronization tool, when I create an organization in artica, and give the option for import domain users, the process completes successfully, and I can see all users of active directory in the members section of the organization, if I choose any member and go to mailbox tab, I can see that the mailbox is created correctly, however, when configuring a mail client using either imap or pop3, the password is not accepted as if it were not being validated with the domain ... and i don´t know if there is a password that artica puts for default for these newly created mailboxes ...

I'm using CentOS 5.5, Cyrus and the arctic is version 1.4.090119

tail -f /var/log/maillog show as follows

Sep 21 10:41:55 ServidorLinux1 cyrus/master[8862]: about to exec /usr/lib/cyrus-imapd/imapd
Sep 21 10:41:55 ServidorLinux1 cyrus/imap[8862]: executed
Sep 21 10:41:55 ServidorLinux1 cyrus/imap[8862]: accepted connection
Sep 21 10:41:55 ServidorLinux1 cyrus/imap[8862]: badlogin: [192.168.1.57] plaintext alarosa SASL(-13): authentication failure: checkpass failed

Thanks ...

Password are not stored in the LDAP "like" Active Directory. Password are stored in a local file on the Windows server.
So artica is not able to import passwords from an Active Directory

Hi, thanks for your answer, I know that the passwords are stored securely in a file in Windows, my interest is not that arctic import these passwords, my interest is that users can authenticate himself using his password from active directory, There are several documents explaining how to make cyrus authenticate a user using the active directory and then get access to the local mailbox, I'll try to make a couple of tests to achieve authentication against Active Directory and, if i can do it, i'll return to publish the way to doit. This is extremely important because of the number of companies that have a centralized repository of usernames and passwords in the organization.

Thanks and greetings.
