Unable to create a proxy user in a Ldap Client machine

Hi All

I have set up LdapUx Client and ADS.

But I am not able to verify the proxy user from the LDAP side.

Ofcourse I have created the proxy user in the Active Directory.

Created a Proxy user using the command

./ldap_proxy_config –i
cn=newuser,cn=users,dc=win2003,dc=com
hello_123

./ldap_proxy_config –p
DN: cn=newuser,cn=users,dc=win2003,dc=com

./ldap_proxy_config –v
FILE CREDENTIALS INVALID

What might be the possible problems.
If u have worked on this area please suggest.

One tool that I found really useful was ADSI edit for Active Diretory.. From memory it is included as an mmc snapin on 2003 but should be available for other releases..

ADSI edit will allow you to view the DN for the proxy user and will list it exactly as you need to enter it..

Looking at your output I think your DN should be:
DN=cn=newuser,dc=users,dc=win2003,dc=com

ADSI edit should confirm that..

Ignore my last comment - you had the DN right all along! sorry about that.

Still, ADSI edit is still a worthwhile tool to have around if you have a complex AD structure

The problem was in keytab file and an entry in the host file. After correcting those it worked fine.
