LDAP authentication is successful even without a password
This document (3449660) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
Novell eDirectory 8.7.3 for all platforms
When authenticating with LDAP binds, if no password is used authentication is successful.
If an incorrect password is supplied, authentication fails.
Using the correct password is successful.
This problem does not occur in the ConsoleOne utility, which does not use LDAP binds.
To disable Anonymous Simple Binds, login to iManager and do the following:
Select LDAP | LDAP Optoins | View LDAP Servers | Select your LDAP server | select the "connections tab" | Scroll down to"Restrictions" and set the "Bind Restrictions" to "Disallow anonymous simple bind".
Once this setting is made and applied, Anonymous Simple binds will return "Inappropriate authentication (48) additional info: Anonymous Simple Bind Disabled."
