LDAP - NetworkAddress not populated

Hi,

We have a problem with LDAP the entry NetworkAddress for most users. The Networkaddress is not populated...

Is there a settings to ask eDir to Update Ldap with this info ?

We need this information because our Firewall needs this LDAP information in order to filter the content per user...

Thank you !

Before you go down this route how, exactly, does your application login
users? For example, most applications I've seen will take the user's
credentials and test them against the LDAP service with a bind, but they
do not maintain the connection as long as the user is logged in instead
managing that session themselves while releasing the connection from the
LDAP service. As a result, about 0.001 seconds after the bind is an
unbind, and the network address stuff is not maintained.

Good luck.

I am not to sure what you are saying.

But here's the info about the firewall :

Palo Alto PA-2050 : Palo Alto Networks | PA-2000 Enterprise Firewall

The Firewall is requesting information to LDAP to bind a user to a computer... Just like in eDir... When you go on the property of your user in console one or iManager you can see on what devices the user is logged on. We'll this hardwarefirewall need to get this information via the NetworkAddress field that returns a HEX encoded ip address.

So we are wondering why this field isnt populated in LDAP. Is it about a config on the user computer ? Config on eDir or LDAP config ?

Thank you for your help.

First anything that ldap publishes is coming from edirectory. I am assuming
this is in regard to getting single sign on working?
