LDAP error 34: Invalid DN syntax

Jump to solution

When using the Base CP 1.14 we are meeting error 34: Invalid DN Syntax. In order to make sure we are not using a bad string, we have tried an LDAP browser (Softerra) which works fine, the LDAP is displayed correctly and we can navigate effortlessly.

Using the same method to connect through the OO operations we are however unable to access the very same data. We are starting to wonder about whether this operation has a flaw, or permission issues that return the DN syntax error when it is actually something completely different.

At this moment we are trying to find alternatives, but it seems like the issue should be easy to fix. Should we look into upgrading the CP version to fix this issue? Are there any other alternatives we can look into that we are not aware of?

Thanks in advance.

Hello HectorAlvarez,

 

Upgrading to the latest versions of the CPs is always a good call since it will include new features as well fixes to issues reported previously. If after the upgrade you are still getting the error, then please open a support ticket in order to investigate the issue properly.

We eventually contacted support, and got a working example. After testing a few operations, some didn't work, and the rest didn't provide reliable performance, so we ended up extending that functionality to create a usable LDAP query content pack.

I personally can't acknowledge an operation is working properly if it crashes on the majority of use cases, even if it works under certain circumstances.
