Creating an LDAP proxy user object

Novell Cool Solutions: Question & Answer

Posted: 8 Sep 2005

Can anyone tell me how to create an LDAP proxy user object and set it to be used for anonymous binds to eDirectory LDAP?

You make a User object (Console1, iManager, etc.). You create it with a blank password (ie: set the password, but don't provide a value). You give it the rights in eDir that you want anonymous binds to have. You then go in to the LDAP Server configuration object and set the Proxy User to the DN of the user you created. This article shows how to create that proxy user in steps 1 to 5.
