OpenVPN with LDAP Windows 2012 R2 domain "AUTH_FAILED"
I installed a pfsense with OpenVPN in bridge mode "tap". I get connected with a local account, but I can not connect with Active Directory.
Tue 16 September 2014 11:29:13 AUTH: Received control message: AUTH_FAILED
Tue September 16 11:29:13 2014 SIGUSR1 [soft, auth-failure] received, process restarting
My domain is a domain level 2012 R2.
ping the servers OK. I can browse and select my OUs (in system> users manager> server)
I have a similar setup with a 2003 domain, it works.
Do you have any tips please?
Thank you in advance,
can you post your sanitized ldap config?
Are you using extended queries?
one thing that made a difference in my domain is the extended query is in the format
Also group member attribute is set to memberOf
Thank you for your reply.
I do not use groups, it is not mandatory? OU contains only users …
Attached screeshot ...
The problem was my configuration (User naming attribute / group naming attribute). It was incorrect.
Attached screeshot (good configuration) to compare with the previous.
Thank you so much!
I think the group member attribute is what is causing most peoples issues with ad/ldap.
Glad you got it working. :)
