  • User-452465472 posted

    following the tutorial from here

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms180890.aspx

    i created a basic login to my active directory.

    I am useing the code to connect to the LDAP by "LDAP://DC=IFS-DC01,DC=IFS.COM"  which is to          ifs-dc01.ifs.com   my network administrator said to use that path to connect for seurity reasons.

    now when trying to logon i get an error 

    Error authenticating. Error authenticating user. A referral was returned from the server 

    if i enter the wrong password i get

    Error authenticating. Error authenticating user. Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password. So i am assuming it is communicatiing with the AD server.  Just what is a referral and how do i get rid of it???

    Try using LDAP://ifs-dc01/dc=ifs,dc=com instead.

    along the same lines how would i be able to prompt to use windows authentication, so users wont have to enter the login information twice they can just logon to the network through windows and have that information be used?  kind of like the sql server does

    Ok, I've been reading a lot of these posts and I'm trying to do the same thing, I followed the same tutorial and got the same message, when I type in a bad password I got the message that said bad username or password... so it's just like the error he is getting... Right now I'm using "LDAP://server-01/DC=01,DC=com" We have two domain controllers and as my network engineer put it: "01, 02 are the domain controllers, as well as server-01 and server-02" How do I format the LDAP path to work correctly... Thanks for any help you can provide. :)

    Just to follow up on this, I figured it out a few years ago... Wow, it's been so long.
