LDAP Problem…

Well, I have been able to get Portal working with my own Domino LDAP, but our Lab Domino LDAP seems to be the culprit in why I can’t get the demo box up and running. After uninstalling, rebooting and doing the LDAP setup 3 times, I continue coming to the same problem.
This is the message I get above. Its as if it can authenticate the user, but not authorize the user ID (I logged in with the wpsadmin administrator ID).

This is the error message I get in the SystemOut.log file:

Caused by: com.ibm.wps.util.DataBackendException: EJPSG0015E: Data Backend Problem com.ibm.websphere.wmm.exception.WMMSystemException: The following Naming Exception occured during processing: “javax.naming.NoPermissionException:

So, after a bunch of searching and scratching my head, I came to the realization that my Domino Directory Assistance was not setup correctly. I ‘assumed’ it was as we use this for our development domain. Its quite embarrasing actually, especially since I worked exclusively with Domino for the first 7 years of my career.

Such is life…
