Unable to complete configuration for Broker Basic Authentication.

environment: windows 2008R2, webmethods 9.5

I’m trying to config the borker basic authentication with openldap, the basicauth.cfg is showed as below:

alias=LDAP1
authtype=LDAP
serverhost=10.78.1.173
serverport=389
alias-min-disabletime=10
alias-max-disable-time=180
defaultDomain=dc=staples,dc=cn
ldap-person-base-binddn=ou=brokerAccount,dc=staples,dc=cn
ldap-group-base-binddn=ou=brokeGroup,dc=staples,dc=cn
ldap-person-objectclass=inetOrgPerson
ldap-group-objectclass=groupOfUniqueNames
ldap-group-prs-attr=uniqueMember
ldap-server-type=OpenLDAP
ldap-userid-field=uid
ldap-passwd-field=userPassword
ldap-groupid-field=cn
ldap-allow-domain-as-base-bind-dn=true
ldap-person-property-attr=cn,sn
ldap-group-property-attr=cn
resolve-groups=ru

The basicauth.log shows that Basic Authentication works after adding the Broker Administrator Basic Identity in MWS -

But the status for Broker Administrator Identity show that “Connected without a identity.” and i can’t config the server’s basic Identity .

please suggest.

Hi Frank,

Are you able to resolve “Connected without Identity” issue, I am also facing same problem in 9.6.

We are using ADSI authentication type, I can see in MWS that Basic Authentication shows as configured, but at Broker Administrator Identity, I got error same as yours.

Thanks in advance !!!
