error code 0x10 - Failed to read root attribute naming Contexts RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I got this error code 0x10 - Failed to read root attribute naming Contexts when creating LDAP MA for Unix system.

    I was using uid=sync,ou=user,o=local

    In addition, there is no problem for telnet unixserver 389

    Please advise. Thanks.

  • It might be helpful if you would tell us which MA are you using

  • Kelvin,

    have you tried using the OpenLDAP MA instead of the ADLDS MA?

    Kind regards

  • According Microsoft, OpenLDAP MA is not supported.  I have successfully created using ADLDS MA in my test env.  I believe it is related to some permission in Unix system which I am not the expert on that.

  • Found out that NamingContexts is not enabled in Unix system. Therefore, unable to use ADLDS MA to create the connection.
