I am trying to set up LDAP authentication for the management console in JBoss AS7. I have a vanilla install that I am running in standalone mode. I have followed the documentation (Use LDAP to Authenticate to the Management Interfaces) exactly, as well as other discussions on the forums (Login with LDAP into the management console). Unfortunately it doesn't seem to work for me. When I start JBoss I get no additional output in the logs pertaining to LDAP. When I attempt to log in to the management console it it appears to reject the login and asks again. However, I get no output in the logs again when this occurs. I have even bumped the logging level on org.jboss.security to the debug level and still nothing.
My XML looks like:
<ldap connection="ldap_connection" recursive="true" base-dn="OU=Users,DC=mycorp">
<ldap name="ldap_connection" url="ldap://wins:389" search-dn="CN=admin,CN=Users,DC=mycorp" search-credential="secret"/>
Any insight is greatly appreciated,
Well the configuration appears to be working after all. Apparently I was using a username/password that didn't exist in the admin group as I had expected. It is still odd that the log gives no output however.
