Re: Ldap authentication does work with selecting Treeless

Let me just try to understand you. It seems to me that you are saying that if you enable treeless login, then contextless login works, but if you disable treeless login, then contextless login fails. Is that correct?
Also, what exact client and SP level are you using?
What are the exact symptoms of contextless login not working? Do you get an error message?

Re: Ldap authentication does work with selecting Treeless

Can you tell me the exact contextless login configuration parameters you used?

In using ldap, I would have to check the ldap treeless box which require for me to put in the tree and the context to search from the top container. Is there a way of not having to check that and use only one tree because my environment are on only one tree.

Re: Ldap authentication does work with selecting Treeless

What I'm asking for is your configuration parameters in case of
contextless login, not treeless login. There is probably a mistake in your
configuration, but without knowing how you configured your contextless
login, I can't tell you what is wrong.

I using Novell Client 4.91 SP5. I understand it better now that when I configure ldap it is use to retrive user information and not creating the NCP. What happen is that I configure ldap by check the treeless login, the conteless login, and the LDAP context search scope and add the ip of the ldap server which is the server that I wan to login. The problem is that it takes a long time to login. In the login screen when I type the login name ldap retrieive the name and the context for me and it leave the server blank. This take a long time to login. When I enter the server name or ip address, I login very fast. Is there a way that I could fix this without going to every client and add in the server which the user login.

Re: Ldap authentication does work with selecting Treeless

A slow login without server sounds like you have an SLP issue. When you don't have a server specified, the client uses SLP to locate a server holding a replica with the context you are trying to login to. This of course requires SLP to be correctly setup and working

I have slp but it is locate at the central office which is my client refer to. I have 29 site with each site with a site server at T1 speed to the central office. So do it is better to have slp on each server at each site to speed up the login process.

No. The SLP protocol itself uses very little bandwidth if configured
correctly. The typical setup, if you don't exceed a few hundred servers,
is to have at least 2 SLP Directory agents (2 for redundancy, 1 is enough
for functionality) and statically confgure all your servers to point to
those DAs through the SLP.CFG file. The clients could in theory also be
configured statically, but in practice, to simplify administration, you
would typically use DHCP to configure the SLP settings on the clients.
Note that this can be done even if clients have static IP addresses.
For more details, check the following TID plus the other TIDs linked from
it:
