    Koha and Active Directory

    I've managed to get Koha installed on Debian and login as the Koha admin user. I'm now trying to get it to lookup users in AD. I've followed all the instructions I can found on Google (editing the koha-conf.xml), at the moment when a user enters the AD username and password it just says you entered an incorrect username/password

    Has anyone got this working?

    Cheers!

    I didn't do it with koha but with glpi and one thing that drove me nuts was the fact that AD doesn't allow anonymous binds for authentication, so you need to specify a search user.

    The error message I was getting wasn't indicative of this, it just said invalid login. Might be related to your issue.

    If I remember correctly, this is because Koha fails to recurse properly in to sub-OUs - it will search the OU you give it for the username, but it won't find users in sub-OUs. I seem to remember there's a patch floating around on the Internet somewhere (it's all of about 5 lines of code - just a while loop). I could be thinking of something else, I don't have our Koha install to hand to check right at the moment, but it's worth a look.
