    Default External Authentication with AD: Authentication Passes, GAL Fails

    I've got Zimbra v6.0.13 running on Ubuntu 8.04 and Active Directory running on Windows Server 2003 on a separate network.

    I'm able to set up authentication with Active Directory using the proper A.D. IP address/port and user to BIND the connection. However, the same settings fail for GAL. The error messages I get are:

    soap:Receiver
    system failure: unable to search gal
    com.zimbra.common.service.ServiceException: system failure: unable to search gal
    ExceptionId:btpool0-30://z.cruzio.com:7071/service/admin/soap/CheckGalConfigRequest:1311962496713:a41a1ab12db85b 6e
    Code:service.FAILURE
    at com.zimbra.common.service.ServiceException.FAILURE (ServiceException.java:248)
    Caused by: javax.naming.CommunicationException: ecoact.org:389 [Root exception is java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused]
    at com.sun.jndi.ldap.LdapReferralContext.<init>(LdapR eferralContext.java:74)
    ... 47 more
    Any thoughts? It seems to me like my authentication failed but I'm not entirely sure why, since the external authentication configuration via A.D. (mentioned above) with the same credentials passes.

    Hi,

    I am experiencing the same issue with ZCS 6.0.8 NE searching a Windows 2008 Active Directory. Did you manage to get this resolved and if so, could you please post your solution?

    Many thanks.

    Hi,

    I managed to find another post (GAL / External / Active Directory Setup Issue), which reads:

    "
    I was able to configure it to work with AD by selecting LDAP as the server type.

    LDAP Filter is: (&(|(cn=%s*)(sn=%s*)(gn=%s*)(mail=%s*)))
    Autocomplete Filter is: (|(cn=%s*)(sn=%s*)(gn=%s*)(mail=%s*))
    LDAP Search Base is: dc=friestedt,dc=local
    "

    Performing this change worked for me.
