    LDAP / JNDI Class Cast Exception

    Thad West Newbie

      I am using the bundled version of JBoss Portal 2.6.2.

      I have successfully configured Portal to use AD for LDAP. My next step was to pull out the LDAP datasource information and put it into the jboss-service.xml file and reference it in my ldap_identity-config.xml file using JNDI.

      I have it all set-up, and when I try to log in I receive a class cast exception. This all works when the connection information is defined in my config file without JNDI. Here are the details:

      ldap_identity-config.xml

       <datasources>
       <datasource>
       <name>LDAP</name>
       <config>
       <option>
       <name>externalContextJndiName</name>
       <value>external/ldap/jboss</value>
       </option>
       </config>
       </datasource>
       </datasources>
      


      jboss-service.xml
       <!-- Bind a remote LDAP server -->
       <mbean code="org.jboss.naming.ExternalContext" name="jboss.jndi:service=ExternalContext,jndiName=external/ldap/jboss">
       <attribute name="JndiName">external/ldap/jboss</attribute>
       <attribute name="Properties">
       java.naming.factory.initial=com.sun.jndi.ldap.LdapCtxFactory
       java.naming.provider.url=ldap://my.company.com:389/DC=my,DC=company,DC=com
       java.naming.security.principal=CN=Portal ID,OU=ServiceAccounts,DC=my,DC=company,DC=com
       java.naming.security.authentication=simple
       java.naming.security.credentials=mypassword
       </attribute>
       <attribute name="InitialContext"> javax.naming.ldap.InitialLdapContext </attribute>
       <attribute name="RemoteAccess">true</attribute>
       </mbean>
