[SOLVED] LDAP to Lotus Domino

Hi all,

I'm trying to configure user management with LDAP to Lotus Domino Server.
I figured to get it to work getting user and groups but...
If i force clicking Synchronize button, then PMG loose the Group configuration and get 0 Groups.

Is it a bug or am I missing something?

Yes, connection is established,
I get users and groups once.

Subsequent synchronization blanks groups and keep only users
Hello hata_ph,
thank you for your answer.

pmgconfig ldapsync was getting that error:

root@pmg:~# pmgconfig ldapsync
file /etc/pmg/ldap.conf line 6 (section 'Domino') - unable to parse value of 'groupbasedn': got undefined value
start syncing ldap profile 'Domino' (
finished syncing ldap profile 'Domino' ( found 65 accounts, 66 addresses, 0 groups

this was the ldap.conf content
ldap: Domino
basedn o=ACMEInc.
binddn yyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
bindpw xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
groupclass dominoGroup
mailattr cn,mail
mode ldap
verify 0

the groupbasedn defined with the GUI was a blank space and was working only at the first sync.
I modified the parameter adding double quotes in the ldap.conf:
groupbasedn " "

now it is working and this is the output:
root@pmg:~# pmgconfig ldapsync
start syncing ldap profile 'Domino' (
finished syncing ldap profile 'Domino' ( found 65 accounts, 66 addresses, 79 groups

It seem to be a problem saving the configuration with blank spaces as params from GUI....

Thank you for addressing me to the right direction
Marking as 'SOLVED' is best done by editing the thread - and selecting the 'SOLVED' prefix from the drop-down (that way it gets the colorful distinction, which is easier to grasp on a quick glance) - I changed that for this thread
