Re: [Evolution] LDAP Exchange Queries


Figured it out. What the issue was is that AD does not allow you to view
objects that are nested in "folders" (pardon the technical term). What
was happening is that he account was searching and returning results
from the higher level without searching the 'subfolders'. Changing the
setting "Search Scope" to SUB alowed it to parse the 'folders' to find
all my contacts. I also had the "Search Base" set too low down the tree.

For Example: Settings should be (based on example)
"Distinguished Name"  wisej acme local
"Search base" DC=acme,DC=local
"Search Scope" Sub

You will be prompted for your password once. Tell it to remember it:>)
When you wish to check out users you double click their corresponding
'letter' then wait ("searching...." will a aprear down on the bottom

Have fun.

Thanks for those who proded me to find the path to enlightment:>)

Ok. I may be makeing some progress here. Once I fixed a few clarical

about the display of LDAP not being "browsable" and so you have to
double-click and wait for a refresh. I do this and I get back some funky

So I thought maybe it was just looking into the wrong container (OU) for
the user account base. I tried variations on changing the "Search Base"
settings to append variations of DC.= or OU,= but that just breaks what
little I can view of AD. I then build a W2K server and it has a very
flat structure of acme.local with one added user being wisej acme local
in the "Users" folder (default location for AD accounts) but this is NOT
an OU. I tried setting "Search Base" to be OU=Users,DC=acme,DC=com but
the same outcome. Any other thoughts?

Mail works.. no name lookup so I figured I needed to add an LDAP server.
Put in for server with name being CN=wisej,DC=pios,DC=com
and it displays several 'support base' options.

The username definition must be wrong becuse it keeps prompting for the
password. I have tried email as the account type (both old and new emial

For an Exchange 2000 server, use "distinguished name" rather than "email
address" for the login type, but then put in your email address for the
distinguished name.
