Win2k16 ADFS problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm trying to configure ADFS in Win2k16 with AD LDS as a users store. Basically it works wiith AD but when I try to authenticate against AD LDS I get info : Incorrect User ID or password. I check ADFS events on ADFS server and I get error events 342 and 362 with information :

    test2@test1.xx.xx.test-The distinguished name contains invalid syntax.

    This user exist in my LDAP store with mentioned UPN. Any ideas whats wrong ?

  • Hello,


    Previous errors regarding distinguished name were caused by wrong username (the same like part of domain name) used for LDAP connection from ADFS.
    Now I still have errors 342 and 362 ( and 305 in addition) but details point to directory searching problem . It concerns also account used for connection (used in -LdapServerConnection parameter). Some details (event 305):

    The Federation Service encountered an error while querying a LDAP server at xx-as00-test.xx.xx.net.

    Additional Data
    Domain name: xx-as00-test.xx.xx.net
    LDAP server hostname (if available): xx-as00-xx.xx.lidl.net
    Authentication type: Basic
    SSL mode: None
    Username (if available): Test2@Test1.xx.xx.test
    Error code (if available): NoSuchObject
    Error from LDAP server (if available): 0000208D: NameErr: DSID-03152709, problem 2001 (NO_OBJECT), data 0, best match of:

    Exception Details:
     The object does not exist.

    Here is parameter used during establishing trust:

    –UserContainer "OU=TestApp1,DC=Test1,DC=xx,DC=xx,DC=test"

    It's correct.
