I'm trying to get LDAP authentication working using Active directory. I have created an LDAP server profile, an Authentication Profile and Group Mapping settings profile. When I'm setting up the Group mappings I can go in and see the entire directory tree and pick groups so I know that it is connecting the the AD server and pulling information. However, in the Authentication Profile, if I try to pick users for the allow list, it doesn't find anything from the AD only local users. I have tried creating a firewall Administrator using the LDAP profile, and cannot login. When I look at the system log, it says "authentication profile not found for user".
I'm obviously missing something somewhere, but can't figure it out.

The CN should equal a real user such as administrator not samaccountname.

I have had this similar issue and I figured out that, the user ID which you are using to authenticate to the AD, should be listed in PA locally as an administrator. Then the AD can be used to authenticate this account. As per my SE, they have submitted an enhancement request and will update you guys once I get to know anything.
Hope this helps

I was having this same problem and switched to Kerberos (assuming it's an AD environment?). Worked like a charm.
