I’m having issues setting up my server to be an ldap replication consumer. This is for use in a company, which uses active directory for the network. The goal is for this server to essentially be a slave to the active directory servers. I attempted to configure the server in YaST, underneath “LDAP Server” and then I created a new database as a “replication consumer.” I entered all the details that our Windows AD admin gave me, but I receive the following error:
[quote]“Initiating the LDAPsync Operation failed”
“Critical extension is unavailable: 00000057: LdapErr: DSID-0C090753, comment: Error processing control, data 0, v1db1”[/quote]
I then get the option to continue anyway, and if I do, YaST blows away all of my configuration and makes me start over.
Even though I’m inputting all the correct values for the server (as confirmed by our AD admin) the server seems to think something is wrong, and won’t cooperate. Documentation on this error in SLES is very scarce. I’m hoping someone here may be able to provide pointers.
